Vic Seidler: Making Sense of Brexit

MON, JUN 4, 2018 (1:05)

Looking at Great Britain's decision to leave the European Union in 2016, what can we learn? In his new book, Making Sense of Brexit: Democracy, Europe, and Uncertain Futures, Vic Siedler addresses the causes and implications of Brexit. He argues that we need new political imaginations across class, race, religion, gender, and sexuality to engage in issues about the scale and acceleration of urban change and the time people need to adjust to new realities.
