This is the only MA programme in the United Kingdom focusing exclusively upon the history, theory and practice of Anglo-German cultural relations from circa 1800 until the present. The programme deals mainly with the literary, theoretical and cultural dimensions of these relations, and also contains a unique practical component, in which students are taught by practitioners from British and German cultural institutions, as well as by experts from the fields of publishing, translating and the media. As such the programme provides a pathway either for future academic study or for a career outside of academia.

Programme outline
You will take the core module: Theory and Practice of Anglo-German Cultural Transfers � which includes the study of inter- and intracultural relations between (national) cultures and will analyse the theory and history of Anglo-German cultural transfers from the late Eighteenth-Century to the present day. The second part will bring students into contact with practitioners in this field and introduce them to the reality of cultural transfers.

You will also take two out of the following three module options:

Anglo German Aesthetics in the �Long� Eighteenth-Century
Anglo-German Travel Writing
In Pursuit of Prejudice? Mutual Perceptions of Identity
You may be permitted to take one option offered as part of another MA programme in the School or within the Faculty of Arts, provided that the MA convenor agrees that this would be beneficial for your intellectual development and research plans. In the case of options outside the School, admission to such modules requires the further agreement of the module convenor.
