This episode brings the project team together again to talk through the experience of doing a sociological research on Brexit while the withdrawal process if unfolding. They reflect on what it is like to do sociology on a topic that is so highly politicised, political and where the stakes are constantly shifting. They talk through their relationship and responsibilities to the people taking part in the research, people for whom this has real life impact. And talk through the challenges of balancing being responsive, engaging with multiple publics, and being attentive to the themes emerging from a large bedrock of original empirical research. In laying bare their experiences, they offer unprecedented insights into the doing of social research on a live and lively issue.
