This MA programme focuses on Black humanities through a critical engagement with histories, philosophies, literature and the arts relating to local and global Black and diasporic communities. Students will learn about the legacies of Atlantic slavery, using Bristol as a case study, alongside broader enquires into current debates in Black histories, philosophy, anthropology, modern languages, film, literature, music and art history. The programme will equip students with relevant research skills and enable you to explore different intellectual and cultural histories and theories across transnational boundaries. Through the degree, students will gain an interdisciplinary and inclusive engagement with Black intellectual history across a range of periods and locations. Students will be encouraged to engage constructively with some of the many ways in which Black identities have been understood, ranging from a focus on communities of Africa and the African diaspora, to inclusive conceptions of political blackness in Britain.
