How do you teach a current, controversial topic such as Brexit? Claire Gordon speaks to Tony Travers and Swati Dhingra, two well-known academics, about how they discuss Brexit in their classrooms. How do lecturers incorporate Brexit into their curricula when teaching? How do they teach such a polarising topic and what has the response from students been? Tony teaches a course on The Politics and the Policies of Brexit: the UK’s changing relationship with the European Union, a course for undergraduates and postgraduates. He is the Director of LSE London and a professor in the School of Public Policy. Swati is based in the Department of Economics and teaches courses in international economics at the undergraduate, Master’s, and doctoral levels.
