We wanted to know what it meant to be a Londoner in Brexit times.
We asked Londoners to tell us, in person and on social media, to what extent Brexit is affecting their sense of belonging to the city and also how it is reconfiguring intergroup dynamics in London. We recorded 138 oral histories during city-wide multi-site fieldwork, and identified Brexit-related material culture to collect.
We’ve acquired 52 videos from this selection so far and are conducting some follow up interviews. We will make a final decision on the rest of the videos after the transition period ends.
