What Does Brexit Mean To You? The conversation

Hosted by the LSE Library

Library Gallery, LSE Library, United Kingdom

Listen to each other and discuss what Brexit means with inspiration from LSE Library’s archives relating to Britain’s relationship with and the history of the European Union.

This is a long table conversation event hosted in the gallery space literally around the long table display case in which one person explains why they voted for leave and another why they voted remain in the EU referendum on 2016. The idea of a long table conversation is that people discuss and listen to each other and we want to encourage discussion about what has become one of the most divisive issues in contemporary society and politics. LSE mediators will help keep the conversation respectful and moving around the table so that everyone has a say.

The British Library of Political and Economic Science was founded in 1896, a year after the London School of Economics and Political Science. It has been based in the Lionel Robbins Building since 1978 and houses many world class collections, including The Women's Library.

You can follow the debate on the following hashtag: #LSEBrexit.
