About the course

Identities structure our reality, our desires, our experience and our ideas. As such, they assume many shapes and forms: the self and the nation, language and gender, migration and trauma, myth and ideology, class and religion, capitalism and populism, ecology and technology. Above all, identities are crystallised in their representation: in the media and popular culture, in literature and film, but also in imagined communities and destinies, contested histories, and collective memory. Exploring and analysing questions of identity as they have unfolded and continue to unfold in Europe, this one-year taught Masters programme offered by the School of Languages, Literatures and Cultural Studies will equip students with the critical tools and real-life experience to understand the complex and varied challenges posed by shifting notions of identity and their very real consequences.
