Episode 1 : The Modern Myth of Brexit with Kenny Brophy
Brexit, it's a word we hear all too often, no doubt we are fatigued by it. But in the cusp of its realization perhaps we should look how we got here. What helped create the narrative and what information was drawn upon in order to make it seem that leaving the EU was the decision to vote for, at least for three majority of people.
I speak to Kenny Brophy from the University of Glasgow about his paper Brexit And Prehistory about the ways in which narratives were created and how people use symbols of the past to create their own narratives, and in some cases their own cairns.
