Pages from New Zealand History: Tracing Joe Hill's ashes in New Zealand
'Pages from New Zealand history: Tracing Joe Hill's Ashes in New Zealand' was a talk I gave as part of a series of lectures on radical New Zealand history. It basically covers my book, Remains to be Seen, which traces the ashes of Joe Hill—union organiser, songwriter, and member of the Industrial Workers of the World—to wartime New Zealand, touching on the workers movement in that country, censorship, and the actions of the New Zealand State.
Next week features a talk by Murray Horton on conscientious objectors during the Second World War. For more info check out: http://beyondresistance.wordpress.com/2012/02/07/pages-from-new-zealand-history-february-sessions-at-the-christchurch-wea/
