About this course

The MA in Political Theory and the Practices of Resistance, explores the theme of 'resistance' in political theory. It examines how this theme has featured in the history of political ideas from Plato to Badiou. It also investigates past and present practices of resistance in a wide range of activities including art, film, poetry and fiction.

By linking theory to practice and focusing on a core thematic, this MA will develop an innovative approach to political thought encompassing historical, conceptual and practical knowledge. The core modules provide a strong grounding in theories and practices of resistance, and it offers students the opportunity to do an assessed practical performance.
