Exploring Political Diversity: Language, Ideology and Identity in Monmouthshire, 1918-1939
My research project will use the case of Monmouthshire during the inter-war years as an example of how fragmented political identities could become, amidst the context of economic turbulence, industrial disputes and increasing militancy. It will show how political identities were created in Monmouthshire, illustrating how rhetoric, language and a sense of place were used to create distinctive political identities, and how they conflicted with potentially opposing personalities, in a county of such distinct contrasts.
