This wide-ranging and intellectually exciting MA scheme explores the richness and diversity of Anglophone postcolonial literatures and cultures, enquires into their social and historical contexts, and examines the theoretical issues they raise. Attention is also paid to other modes of cultural production such as film and music, and to the relation between literary studies and other disciplines, including history, geography and anthropology.
You will be taught in weekly seminars in small groups by the School’s specialists in postcolonial literary and cultural studies. The scheme aims to provide a conceptual basis for comparative literary and cultural analysis, and to improve written and spoken communication skills.
A 2:1 honours degree, or equivalent, in English or in a closely related subject. You will be required to submit a piece of your own written work, of about 2,000 words in length, as part of our admissions procedures. Admissions judgements are made on this piece of work, together with references, grade transcripts, predicted or actual degree results, and other appropriate qualifications.
