Our multi-disciplinary MA focuses on an important and developing area within the social sciences, marked by a substantive shift in society, otherwise known as ‘the cultural turn’. The impact of this shift can be detected in the rise of identity politics and new social movements, as well as in the emergence of an alternative, broader conception of politics; a conception that looks beyond traditional political agencies to include the private realm and cultural life in general.

Taught by leading academics and drawing on UEA’s long-established expertise in the field, our course will equip you with the skills and resources to analyse the changing politics of contemporary culture and communication, and to reflect on their impact on the conduct and character of society. You’ll develop a sense of politics that goes beyond the standard, institutionalised forms to include cultural practices and everyday life. You’ll discover the ways in which media, in its various forms, is shaping the exercise of political, social and cultural power. And you’ll acquire advanced knowledge of research methods, which you will then apply to your final dissertation.

As a member of our postgraduate community you will have the opportunity to attend numerous events and talks during your time here. We regularly attract distinguished lecturers, with previous guests including Gary Gibbon, Political Editor for Channel 4 News; Anne McElvoy of The Economist; Owen Jones, author and columnist for The Guardian; Shami Chakrabarti, former director of Liberty; Michael Cockerell, BBC documentary film-maker; and John Bercow, Speaker of the House of Commons. Find out more about our postgraduate community and experience some of these lectures.
