The Centre for the Study of Global Human Movement


The Researching Brexit Network is delighted to welcome abstracts for their second event which will take place at Durham University on 28-29 October 2019. The conference will appeal to PhD Candidates at all stages of their research considering Brexit from a range of theoretical and methodological perspectives. Each panel will consider the different ways Brexit can be perceived both as the object of study, as well as within the research process. From projects which are considering the theoretical dimensions of a perspective such as Gender and Brexit, to those who are concerned with the possible demographic perspectives such as Brexit and migrant communities.

The aim of this conference is to give PhD researchers the opportunity to consider how their research fits into a wider community, reflect on their experience of research, share this with others, and lead fruitful discussions. The idea going forward is to form an interdisciplinary cohort of early career social scientists interested in researching Brexit and related issues. We invite paper proposals from all disciplines from PhD candidates whose research is focused on or heavily influenced by Brexit. We are also open to non-traditional panels, bringing in future research ideas, experimental methods, and/or audio-visual media.


Please submit biographies and abstracts of up to 250 words for papers of between 10-12 minutes before the closing date of 30th August to You can find additional information in the attached Call for Abstracts. Follow us for updates on
