Are you critical and independent-minded? Do you think that history and literature should challenge political certainties?
This course explores the complex problems of modern societies through a historical, literary and cultural lens. You will consider such questions as: How do novels, poems, autobiographies, memorials, films and television shape our perception of the world? Who decides what counts as history? How do different versions of the past shape how we live today? What role do cultural texts and practices play in negotiating the conflicts that divide so many societies?
In seminars, essays and individual tutorials you will draw on your analytical skills to consider how literary, cultural and historical texts relate to real-world political and philosophical concerns.
We host over 100 guest lectures every academic year, where international scholars, politicians and writers share their knowledge and experiences.
