Thesis title: The Brexit vote’s implications for dimensions of belonging among English-born white residents in a working-class neighbourhood in England

My research seeks to explore how the Brexit vote can be understood in terms of place-based belonging, localism and attachment to place. It looks at the interplay of class and race in discourses of local belonging and the Brexit vote in a traditionally white working class neighbourhood.
