In episode 40, Michaela and Karen are joined by leading sociologist Professor Pauline Leonard to discuss British emigration. Painting a multi-faceted picture of British migrants, they trouble the orthodoxies in how we understand British citizens living abroad.
The study is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council and the UK in a Changing Europe Initiative (Grant Number ES/R000875/1). It is led by Dr Michaela Benson, Reader in Sociology at Goldsmiths, University of London. Further information about the project is available at RCUK’s Gateway to Research.
