Join Wake Forest University and INSTEP for an exciting spring lecture series focusing on UK economic or political topics.

The discussion will focus on the evolving modern international history of Britain, and London’s place in that evolution. It will explore the tremendous changes that have taken place since the end of the Second World War as Britain has withdrawn from Empire. It will then examine the huge developments currently underway as Britain leaves the European Union. Finally, it will examine the possibility of a third major wave of change with the potential breakup of the United Kingdom.

The lecture will be held via Zoom. Login information will be sent to all participants 60 minutes prior to the start of the lecture. Registration for the event will close 10 minutes prior to the beginning of the lecture.
