Course summary

You’ll explore cultural and media productions, practices and institutions in national, transnational and global contexts and across subject areas including philosophy, literature, sociology, art history, film, communication studies and digital humanities. With a great choice of modules, you’ll gain a wide breadth of knowledge and be able to tailor your studies to focus on areas that interest you the most. You’ll examine issues such as conflict and its cultural mediation, migration and multicultural societies as well as utopian thinking and social activism in offline and online spaces. You’ll study difference across the globe, including race, class, gender, disability, the dialogue of analogue and digital technologies with our minds, bodies, ecologies, and other life forms, alongside the social effects of global communication networks. The course is taught jointly by two distinctive departments (the School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies and the School of Media and Communication), who combine innovative approaches to studying, making, and displaying culture and the arts with critical examinations of how people share knowledge, values and beliefs through television, journalism, film, online media and beyond. Alongside academic staff, you may also be taught by industry professionals with years of experience, as well as trained postgraduate researchers, connecting you to some of the brightest minds on campus. You’ll become a critical and agile evaluator of cultural materials and mediated practices across diverse contexts, thereby allowing you to become global citizens who actively engage with contemporary societal challenges.
