The Brexit module offers students an opportunity to explore some of the many
aspects of this momentous and highly complex issue. We will construct the
programme around your particular interests and the current state of your knowledge
(or lack of it). Space will be left for consideration of the current issues and
controversies that will inevitably emerge during the Brexit negotiations and
legislation while the workshop is running.
Our broad approach in dealing with a concrete Brexit issue will be to gain an
overview of the issue and what is thought to be at stake with it, noting and filling any
gaps in our factual knowledge. This would probably be followed by a discussion of
the arguments for and against any of the controversies involved in the issue, and,
finally, outlines of the more abstract ideas and theories that help to illuminate the
Sessions will not be lecture–based. Instead, they will involve student activities in
small–groups, using materials provided by the tutor, followed by whole class
discussions. Students will be able to submit work for assessment either as individuals,
16 pairs or small groups. The assessment assignments will be individually agreed
between students and the tutor.
Bookings are closed for this event.
