Cultural Analysis (MA)

Course Description

Since its beginnings in 2001, the Research Master's programme in Cultural Analysis has rapidly gained a leading reputation in the field and is attracting growing numbers of high-level applicants from around the world.

The programme is dedicated to the interdisciplinary analysis of culture at large. Cultural phenomena such as works of art and literature, cinema and new media, and popular culture, as well as social belief and value systems are examined and analysed. Emphasis is placed on textual, visual and historical details in the context of the social, political or aesthetic movements that underpin them. Their implied normativity and the ways in which identity, difference and otherness are negotiated across the cultural spectrum are questioned.
