Brexit Brits Abroad: what’s Britishness got to do with it (migration)?

In this episode Professor Pauline Leonard (University of Southampton), one of the leading sociologists working in this field of research, and the co-editor of the new book British Migration joins Michaela Benson in troubling the orthodoxies in how we understand the British citizens living abroad. Painting a multi-faceted picture of British migrants living all over the world, they talk about the multi-faceted ways in which Britishness is made and remade among its emigrants, reflect on who does and does not step forward into the space of this research (and how we might as researchers attend to this), and the importance of understanding emigration in the making of Britain.
