Graduate Student Call for Papers | ‘History in Light of Brexit’| London, 5-7 June 2019

There have been, and will be, numerous conferences about the causes and consequences of Britain’s departure from the European Union. This conference is not one of them. Rather, we want to think about history in light of Brexit. Indeed, to ask what does Brexit mean for the recent political history of Europe and Britain?

The next APH Conference in Political History will take place 5-7 June 2019 in London, UK. The conference is organised by King’s College London Contemporary History, The Strand Group, The History of Parliament Trust.
