At a time when national frameworks are increasingly being called into question by globalisation, this programme analyses the historical, social, cultural and linguistic effects arising from the traffic across national boundaries. Read more

At a time when national frameworks are increasingly being called into question by globalisation, this programme analyses the historical, social, cultural and linguistic effects arising from the traffic across national boundaries. Individual modules examine historical and contemporary transnational phenomena at the intersection of the Humanities and Social Sciences. Transnationalism challenges our thinking within national frameworks yet also throws up new questions about the sites and processes of power in an interconnected human world. We examine these questions from the perspective of different case studies and examples, based on a wide range of geographical locations. The MA in Transnational Studies explores the role and impact of cross-border relations in a globally interconnected space. We examine transnationalism both as a concept and a set of practices and politics in the 20th and 21st centuries.

Introducing your course

Are you passionate about the global community? Fascinated by the movement of populaces and the impact this has had on culture, history and society? An MA in Transnational Studies at the University of Southampton unlocks interdisciplinary modes of inquiry which allow you to understand a rapidly transforming globalized world. Study modules that focus on a range of cultures and periods, from imperialism and decolonisation to the transnational movement in the age of globalisation. Through the masters course, you will not only learn how worldwide thinkers conceptualise the global traffic of people, goods, and ideas but be encouraged to locate your own research interests within global frameworks. This masters degree can lead to a variety of successful careers in politics, marketing and teaching.

Overview

The programme takes a unique interdisciplinary approach, combining insights from the Humanities and the Social Sciences. The course investigates new and historical population movements and their impact on our understanding of contemporary societies; it analyses the transnational flow of cultural texts and products; it takes into focus the role of artists and thinkers in a global cultural network, and brings to light new cultures of dissemination and consumption. It engages transnationalism as an approach that asks new questions about the role of nation and state and opens up inquiries into the creation, articulation and contestation of national identities and collective memories; it explores the role of multilingualism in transnational spaces and the ways in which beliefs about language inform social inclusion and exclusion.

At a time of unprecedented political change, the study of cultural politics has never been more relevant.
