Course content

This MA offers an unusually wide-ranging exploration of the cultural manifestations of colonial conquest, national identities, anti-colonial resistance and post-colonial struggles.

You will have the opportunity to study these interconnected experiences from the beginnings of European imperialism to the present day. The MA recognises both disciplinary and interdisciplinary dimensions of the field; all of the modules involve questions of culture, history, and politics, but some modules focus on a particular discipline.

The range of modules allows for a comparative understanding of different forms of imperial rule, and it encourages a comparative approach to African, Asian, Irish, Middle Eastern and Pacific responses to the experience of colonisation. You will also be able to explore the transnational elements of cultural production and reception.

Assessment

-Four assessed essays of approximately 4,500 words each
-A 14,000-16,000 word dissertation, written in consultation with a supervisor on an agreed topic
