William Morris, Walter Crane, and their acolytes were very much a part of this trans-Atlantic radical political, literary, and artistic exchange of ideas. This panel explores the dynamics and consequences of their efforts, doing so in a way that more fully elucidates Morris’s trans-Atlantic influence on socialism’s rise in the West.
