At the heart of the course is the production of a dissertation – a substantial piece of individual research work. Supporting your achievement in this are a series of taught units, introducing advanced research skills, analytical techniques and methodological perspectives that you will need for work at the cutting edge of contemporary humanities.

In addition, you will study a core unit, Cultural Identities: Self and Other, which will introduce key theoretical issues. You will then choose to study either Body Maps or European Others, plus one further option drawn from:

  • Performing Genders
  • Postmodern Detectives
  • Independent Project

You will also take a research management unit to support the research for your dissertation. For the dissertation you will pursue in depth an approved topic of your choice.
