Women’s Studies – Humanities
The MA in Women’s Studies (Humanities) is a tailored programme for those with a particular interest in humanities-informed approaches to interdisciplinary women’s and gender studies. You’ll address a diverse range of theoretical and methodological approaches to women’s and gender studies, developing a critical awareness of the gendered aspects of cultural life, representation and textual enquiry. You will have the opportunity to focus on a variety of cultural perspectives and practices – literary, visual, and artistic – from both contemporary and historical cultures and across a range of geographical and societal spaces. The emphasis on humanities-informed feminist methodologies and practical research skills will enable you to conduct a substantial piece of independent research.
