About the project

  • Do you feel like a fully accepted member of British society?
  • Do you have different views to Britishness than your parents and grandparents?
  • How much does history or your heritage affect how you see your identity today?
  • What has your generation got to teach the elders about how to think about identity and Britishness?
  • What does the Union Jack emblem mean to you?
  • What does Brexit mean to you?

This media research project is being run by Dr Shawn Sobers, Ruth Pitter and Michael Jenkins. It is not funded (yet!), we are doing it purely for the passion of wanting to hear and capture your views at this important time, which may be the defining moment for generations in the UK.

It will involve having your portrait taking and a short video interview, and will become a time-capsule of your views for future generations.  With Brexit approaching and this important General Election, we feel now is the time for the new voices to emerge….we are here to help set up your platform!

Every view, opinion and perspective is valuable – come and share yours!

If you are interested in getting involved, we ask for just 30 mins of your time.  Please contact shawn.sobers [@] uwe.ac.uk and we can arrange a time to meet.
