Abstract

In August, 2016 I was walking between my accommodation and a conference venue on my way to deliver a lecture on social work history when I came across an art installation with the phrase ‘the future has a long history’, which I captured in the above photograph. As I attend other social work conferences I am increasingly aware that the history of social work and its influence is attracting much interest. This article tries to capture some of the debate which is arising using some of these experiences and also indicates ongoing developments.
