Why study MA Anthropology and Cultural Politics at Goldsmiths?

  • You’ll address contemporary issues in culture and politics from an anthropological perspective, drawing on the commitment of the Department of Anthropology at Goldsmiths to build a public anthropology.
  • You’ll study a core module which draws on anthropological theories of language and culture as a lens through which to explore broader questions of ideology, power, and global political economy.
  • You’ll grapple with classic texts in critical theory from the Frankfurt School to British cultural studies, feminism to Foucault, post-colonialism to post-development, with a strong focus on thinkers from the global South.
  • You’ll be able to choose option modules across several departments including Media and Communications, Sociology and Politics to create your own individual programme of study, before completing a dissertation on a subject of your choice.
