Queer Studies in Arts and Culture

In this context, queer studies is regarded as a multifaceted field of research focusing on arts based production, emerging from a range of creative practices. Students will enhance knowledge and understanding of queer studies and its potential for material and textual practice. They will be encouraged to develop a high level of speculation and to hone their critical and analytical skills. Students will have the opportunity to personalise learning through the modules they choose, to advance their practical skills and to explore alternative media. This course prepares students for a life as a professional LGBTQI artist, a PhD researcher or to work in other career areas.
