Drawing on the internationally recognised and pioneering expertise of staff in the Department of Sociology and Department of Media and Communications in the development of cultural approaches to gender formations and gender theory, the programme offers you the opportunity to develop cutting edge critical skills in a range of sociological and cultural media and communications studies perspectives on gender relations specifically, and on culture more generally. As well as these theoretical and analytical points of orientation, the MA Gender, Media and Culture aims to help you grasp the importance of epistemology and methodology for the evaluation of empirical investigations of gender formations. The programme therefore introduces you to and offers training in the key socio-cultural methods for the study of gender in the contemporary world, including methods for the study of visual culture; the body and affect; and memory and autobiography. These two elements of the programme are brought together in a dissertation study, which involves tailored supervision in the application of research methods to a specific topic.
