As part of her interest in communicating the practice of doing research, Michaela prepared this audio as an academic diary entry for the Sociological Review. In this short piece, she reflects on her fieldwork experiences with the Brexit Brits Abroad project, highlighting the excitement and challenges of working on such a fast-moving topic, and juggling the intensities of fieldwork with (the rest of) academic life.
Towards the end of her fieldwork in Toulouse, Michaela prepared a short audio post for her research centre at Goldsmiths, the Centre for Urban and Community research. In the post, she reflects on what talking Brexit with Britons living in Toulouse has done for the research. This is an enhanced version of the original post including video and photographic material from her visit.
