Course content

On this MA you will interrogate digital culture as you develop and think through your own projects in our bespoke Centre for Cultural Studies media lab. You will undertake research and writing that incorporates contemporary art, software studies, critical theory, philosophy and cultural studies.

Our modes of art, experimentation, work, sociability, politics and economies are changed in tandem with the development of digitality. Many of us are now continuously wired into our networks for fun, at work, and at home. We often find ourselves at the margins of networked relationships where different flows of power form from the residue we leave behind in electronic memories. On one hand we find ourselves policed by the ability to sort large amounts of information on the move, on the other, new spaces grow from technical innovation, experimentation and artistic methods.

Join our MA Digital Culture and help create new insights within these logics. Your writing and projects will be supported in an interdisciplinary environment. You do not necessarily need to have an initial project in mind, nor a technical background, just an enthusiasm for learning and experimentation. Each year we have a very lively mix of students who bring prior experience from across the arts, humanities, and sciences.

The MA in Digital Culture helps students develop and realize innovative projects and prepare for, or to create a bridge towards, a critical career in the cultural, creative, educational, analytical, and computational sectors.
