University of Kent
School of European Culture and Languages
The MA in Postcolonial Studies develops your understanding of the politics of culture in relation to both the imperialist world’s interpretation of the colonial, and postcolonial assertions of autonomy. In this context, while ‘postcolonial’ refers primarily to societies of the so-called ‘Third World’, it also includes questions relevant to cultures such as those of Ireland and Australia.
The University of Kent was one of the first universities to establish postcolonial literary studies in Britain and has continued to play a significant part in the development of the field. Among the teachers involved in the programme are Abdulrazak Gurnah, Caroline Rooney, Alex Padamsee and Donna Landry (see staff research interests for further details).
