Abstract [en]

Workers’ education became anintegral part of the labor movementat the turn of the twentiethcentury. However, few studieshave compared study activitiescross-nationally. In this article Ianalyze the subjects studied in theBritish tutorial classes arranged bythe Workers’ Educational Association(WEA), and the Swedish studycircles arranged by Arbetarnasbildningsförbund (ABF) during theinter-war period. In Britain, humanitiesand social sciences dominatedworkers’ education, literaturebeing by far the most commonsubject studied. Economics andhistory were also popular subjects.Literature was also a commonlystudied subject in the Swedish study circles but during the 1920ssubjects which aimed at teachingthe participants organizational andideological skills superseded literature.Language courses were alsovery popular in Sweden. Comparingthe course subjects, it seemsthat the British workers’ educationprimarily focused on self-cultivationof the individual worker whereasthe Swedish workers’education emphasized skills thatwould benefit the labor movementorganizations.
