MA War, Culture and Society

Our MA War, Culture and Society raises urgent questions about why societies go to war, and the impact on individuals and communities. Drawing on our expertise in disciplines such as psychoanalytic studies, law, government, literature, sociology and history, you have the option to tailor your degree based on your interests choosing from a range of optional modules. You can explore a number of topics including, but not limited to:

  • The effects of violence and psychological trauma
  • The role of women during times of conflict
  • The context of the refugee experience
  • History of medicine
  • How wartime service remembered and commemorated
  • Legacies of War, Holocaust, Occupation and Collaboration in Post-1945 Europe
  • The Cold War and the remaking of British Citizenship, 1945-89
  • War, literature and gender
