In the latest of its monthly series of interdisciplinary microsites addressing important public issues, SAGE Publishing is offering free access to a suite academic articles that focus on the ramifications of Britain’s exit from the European Union. The content will remain ungated until April 5.
Brexit continues to be a topic of vital interest within academia and to society at large. Since the 2016 referendum research and debate has focused on the impact on politics, the economy, trade, migration, labor, healthcare and daily life – all issues nervously awaiting the official exit on March 29. With this website, SAGE brings together the latest research on Brexit from a wide range of subject areas.
The microsite is intended as a hub for research published on Brexit across all a wide variety of social science subjects. The material, numbering dozens of journal articles, draws from SAGE’s extensive stable of academic journals spanning pertinent areas such as journalism, economics, geography and political science.
One goal of this and other SAGE microsites is to examine the entire spectrum of research on area of public interest – note, not in a specific discipline – to help researchers pursue knowledge outside of their usual silos.
Some of the specific high-profile pieces in the new collection include Chiara Bonacchi, Mark Altaweel and Marta Krzyzanska’s “The heritage of Brexit: Roles of the past in the construction of political identities through social media” from Journal of Social Archaeology; Jonathan Portes’s “Immigration, Free Movement and the EU Referendum” from National Institute Economic Review; and Rebecca Adler-Nissen, Charlotte Galpin and Ben Rosamond’s “Performing Brexit: How a post-Brexit world is imagined outside the United Kingdom” from The British Journal of Politics and International Relations.
The microsite also includes access to special issues focused on Brexit, such as Medical Law International’s issue on UK health and a look at Euroscepticism today from Politics.
