History in Light of Brexit

5 Jun History in light of brexit main

There have been, and will be, numerous conferences about the causes and consequences of Britain’s departure from the European Union. This conference is not one of them. Rather, we want to think about history in light of Brexit. To explore the questions that Brexit poses for how historians should think about the political history of Europe. Our event will bring together PhD students from universities across Europe to discuss these issues. 

The event will also include plenary discussions with senior academics and those once active in politics, such as Sir Stephen Wall, the Permanent Representative to the European Union between 1995 and 2000. You can find the provisional programme here.

If you would like to know more about the event, please get in touch with Tom Kelsey at
