So, Brexit? Gurminder Bhambra deeply explores the idea of Britain as a nation and challenges dominant narratives on the recent vote for Britain to leave the European Union. Gurminder K Bhambra is Professor of Postcolonial and Decolonial Studies at the University of Sussex. Previously, she was Professor of Sociology at the University of Warwick and Guest Professor of Sociology and History at Concurrences Centre for Colonial and Postcolonial Studies at Linnaeus University, Sweden.
She is author of Connected Sociologies (Bloomsbury Academic, 2014) and Rethinking Modernity (Palgrave, 2007), which won the British Sociological Association’s Philip Abrams Memorial Prize for best first book in 2008. She curates the Global Social Theory website and is co-editor of the free online magazine, Discover Society.
Her current research addresses colonial and postcolonial legacies within Europe and how the project of the European Union, and exit from it alike, are shaped by those legacies.
