The first in a series of events inviting leading scholars, writers and artists to reflect on the question - who are we becoming?
Join us for lectures, conversation and photography that will look at how ideas of free movement, citizenship, national identity and Empire play out in the context of Britain’s planned exit from the European Union.
Each evening will start with a brief summary of the latest political developments, followed by two lectures and Q&A with the speakers. We will finish with a short performance or photography presentation.
