Brexit in Historical Perspective - HSTY2717

Year - 2020

This unit examines Brexit in the context of British political, social, and economic history and the UK's relations with continental Europe since World War II. As well as using recent history to make sense of Brexit, we'll consider how accounts of the British past that are dominated by the experience of empire might look different in the light of Britain's European history.
