Description of Culture and Colonialism (MA)

The MA (Culture and Colonialism) is a multi-disciplinary taught Master of Arts programme, designed for graduates from the Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences. Colonialism (the control and exploitation of dependent territories by a more dominant nation) has been one of the most crucial cultural influences on modern society, politics and culture across the globe. Its ongoing legacies shape today’s headlines about political and cultural conflicts – and their fragile resolutions. Students are trained to analyse colonialism in both its past and present incarnations, across an international range of geographical and historical contexts, and to consider its significance in relation to imperial ascendancies, nationalist movements, postcolonial experiences, the rise of neo-colonial thought, and the spread of globalisation.
