Part of 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.

Engin Isin is Professor of International Politics in the School of Politics and International Relations at Queen Mary University of London and the University of London Institute in Paris.
Engin’s research and teaching focus on doing international politics: the ways in which people constitute themselves as actors or subjects of international politics through performances, movements, and struggles. Engin is a leading scholar in citizenship studies and has published thirteen books in the field, including Being Political and Citizens Without Frontiers. He is a chief editor of the journal Citizenship Studies.
Anne-Marie Fortier is Professor in the Department of Sociology at the University of Lancaster. Her research examines governing practices that seek to stabilise identities in the face of migration. She has explored these processes in contexts such as migrant community formation; multiculturalism, cohesion and integration; queer diasporas; national genetic genealogies; and, currently, the citizenship naturalisation process in England.Read More
