Brexit is scheduled for October 31. Do you know how we got to this point?

What is the historical background of Brexit, the UK’s divorce from the European Union? How did Britain get into the EU in the first place? What is the EU? What’s a “Eurosceptic?” What lessons can we draw from Brexit’s past? Find out in this free webinar!

Dr. Sean Munger will do a brief but deep dive into the history of the European Union and the UK’s tumultuous relationship with it. This webinar is historical, not political, and aims to fill in the back-story of Brexit that almost never makes it into the headlines.

This is a “geohistory” course, where you will not only hear about the history, but see the places where it happened! The class is fully interactive–you can ask questions, chime in, discuss with Sean and other students. No “homework.”
