In this commentary we explore how geographers might respond to the event of ‘Brexit’ – the decision and process of the United Kingdom to leave the European Union after the referendum of 23 June 2016. Although it is necessary to understand the ways in which Brexit is an effect of a range of named causes and conditions, we argue that geographers should also stay with the event of ‘Brexit’ by following how Brexit surfaces across a variety of everyday scenes and situations. Such geographies of everyday Brexit would begin from the different ways in which people, groups and organisations relate to Brexit through the making present of diverse futures. As futures are anticipated, hoped for, suspended or otherwise related to, Brexit (re)animates relations of power, and gives rise to new forms of collective and bodily life.
