Dr Jonathan Evershed is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Government and Politics at UCC, where his research on the ESRC-funded project ‘Between Two Unions’ explores the consequences of Brexit for political relationships within and between Northern Ireland, Ireland and Great Britain. He has worked with his colleague Dr Mary C. Murphy to chart, analyse and help to shed light on the twists and turns of the Brexit process and its impact on Ireland, North and South. He has a background in political anthropology, and completed his PhD at the Institute of Irish Studies, Queen’s University Belfast, where he is currently a Visiting Research Fellow. His previous research examined the politics and culture of Ulster Loyalism during the ‘Decade of Centenaries’ and in the run-up to the 2016 Brexit referendum. In 2018, he published his first book, Ghosts of the Somme: Commemoration and Culture War in Northern Ireland (University of Notre Dame Press).
