In December 2018, before we started our research, we organised a workshop in Manchester. The idea was to bring together colleagues who were also researching Brexit from ethnographic and social scientific perspectives. We hoped to pool ideas, identify common themes and to stand on each other’s shoulders rather than toes.
The drawings to the right were made by Paul Gent on the day and are a partial record of the event and our discussion. For being there and helping us think, we would like to thank

We would also like to thank Cathrine Degnen, Michael Howcroft, Katherine Davies and Alexander Kirby-Reynolds who joined us at a second Brexit workshop in Manchester in July 2019
