On 23 June 2016, Britain voted to leave the European Union – a decision that has raised a wide variety of problems and questions.

One year after this momentous decision, the University of Northampton will hold a one-day conference to discuss these issues. It will bring together established academics, early career researchers and others with informed views, to discuss the unfolding implications of this historic development, and consider future research agendas.

The keynote speaker will be Professor Glen O’Hara (Oxford Brookes University)

Other guest speakers will be:

  • Dr Catharine Harris and Dr Aleksandra Kazlowska, University from Birmingham
  • The Writer Richard Kelly, University of Northampton
  • Dr William Allchorn, University of Leeds
  • Dr Sumaya Alnahed University of West London
  • Dr Emma Roberts, University of Chester
  • Writer and Comedian David Cohen

This event has been designed to foster debate, promote the exchange of ideas between disciplines and subject areas, and encourage the sharing of approaches to thinking about Brexit. It will also provide opportunities for networking, to help foster new and on-going projects engaged with the many issues posed by Brexit.

Finally, we are still offering the opportunity for PhD students (and others who want to be part of this event) to contribute to our poster exhibition. We will be accepting proposals until 15 June 2017.

To submit a proposal please email a summary and a CV, or a link to an online profile to
