Brexit: What Now? Dr. Richard Aldous, Bard College

Assuming that the April 12th deadline is met, we might be in a slightly more informed place to discuss what the EU and Britain will look like! Join us for a discussion covering all of the hot topics coming out of the UK lately: future UK trade policy, the Irish border question, deal or no deal?, immigration policy and Brexit from a historical perspective.
Eugene Meyer Professor of British History and Literature, Dr. Aldous is the author and editor of eleven books, including most recently Schlesinger: The Imperial Historian. He has written widely on Anglo-American relations (Reagan and Thatcher, Macmillan Eisenhower and the Cold War), Irish history (Tony Ryan; Great Irish Speeches) and British history (The Lion and the Unicorn: Gladstone vs. Disraeli, Tunes of Glory: The Life of Malcolm Sargent). He is a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society and was for many years Chair of the History Department at University College Dublin.
