Cultural History, Memory and Identity

The course comprises 3 pathways: cultural memory; making histories interpreting archives; race, nation and ethnicity. The course develops a connection between critical understanding and analysis of the origins, forms and effects of cultural constructions of history and memory, and a practical, 'hands-on' emphasis upon the skills and methods involved in the making of new historical accounts and representations. Emphasising the close relation between academic study and broader cultural interest in the past and its significance in everyday life, the programme enables investigation of a wide range of cultural forms and practices, including oral history, life-story work and auto/biography, drama and performance, architecture and the built environment, material artefacts, monuments, exhibitions, museums, written histories, imaginative literature, archival collections of documents and other material, painting, graphic design, photography, film, television, video, multimedia/virtual reality, commemoration, and heritage.

Entry requirements

Relevant honours degree or equivalent. Candidates without a degree but who have suitable professional experience or substantial experience of historical enquiry and research may be admitted. For non-native speakers of English: IELTS 7.0 overall and 6.5 in writing.
