My thesis examines the ideologies of Britishness, Europeanness and extra-Europeanness in pro-Brexit newspapers, documents from the Home Office, Foreign Office and Department for Exiting the European Union, and in the speech of people living in the East Midlands. It takes a mixed-method approach, combining corpus linguistics, critical discourse analysis and focus group interviews.
