England on the Verge of Brexit: Brexit was made in England; but will England be re-made by Brexit?
Lecture by John Denham
19 March, 6.30-8pm / Nash Lecture Theatre, King’s College London, The Strand, London WC2R 2LS
Brexit was a very English decision. Yet England was barely mentioned in the referendum campaign nor in its fractious aftermath. It remains a nation whose name is unspoken.
This lecture will explore the roots of England’s discontent in its governance and constitutional status and the failure to tackle the nation’s economic and social divides. John Denham will argue that, unless these challenges are addressed during Brexit and its aftermath, the underlying tensions will only grow.
Prof John Denham is Director of the Centre for English Identity and Politics at the University of Winchester. He is a former Labour MP and Cabinet Minister.
The lecture is jointly hosted by King’s Contemporary British history and English Labour Network. It is the inaugural event in KCBH’s England series.
