The MA in Black British History provides students with an opportunity to study and research the histories of Africans and African-descended peoples in the United Kingdom. Students will learn about key concepts and methods for writing, researching, teaching, and sharing Black British histories. On this programme, students will gain a firm understanding of the histories of Africans and African-descended peoples in the United Kingdom, as well as of the ways that diasporas, empire, and patterns of migration have shaped Britain. Goldsmiths’ MA Black British History explores important theories and methods from a range of fields and consider how they relate to the Black British experience. These theories and methods will include African diaspora studies and Black European studies; histories of colonialism, slavery, and emancipation; histories of the African continent and the Caribbean region; as well as postcolonial theory, Black studies, critical race theory, and contemporary debates about race and ethnicity. The programme will also include modules that allow students to learn about Black British history from global, national, regional, and local perspectives. Join in the work of researching and sharing the histories of Black people in Britain, as well as learning about Black British histories, which have been marginalised from our public understandings of British history, and are too often invisible in education and in the media. Learn to critically engage with historical records, artefacts, and writings, as well as the established and emerging scholarship on Black Britain.
