Rule Britannia: Brexit and the End of Empire
Professor Danny Dorling (Professor of Human Geography at St Peter’s College) and Sally Tomlinson (Emeritus Professor of Education Policy, Goldsmiths) will be speaking about Brexit and Britain’s imperial history in the college chapel.
Is much of the Brexit debate based on a sunny, and unsustainable view of our imperial role? Are we drowning in groundless nostalgia? Are we doomed never to be able to adapt to the loss of an empire? Or just as the Suez crisis helped usher in the Sixties - should we have hope?
