Race, nation and empire: what Brexit tells us about Britain

Date
Sun 22.09.19
Timings
1pm – 2:30pm

Brexit is often spoken about in the media as the primary cause of the problems facing Britain today, but there is an untold story of Britain’s troubled relationship to empire, its contradictory sense of nationhood and increasing inequality that reframes Brexit as a symptom of a slowly unfurling social and political crisis. This session will look at unpacking who actually voted for Brexit and what the past four years can tell us about the past century of British history.
