Course content

This new and unique Masters importantly addresses black writing as a continuum. Its heritage in British culture is considered along a trajectory marked by historical presences as connecting with migratory, indigenous and global perspectives.

Introducing the MA Black British Writing - “It’s a story that hasn’t really been told”

This MA is:

  • World first. Nowhere else in the world can you study this field in such a richly, referenced way - in the actual country where the writing is produced.
  • Cross-disciplinary in teaching, studies, research. Writing as perceived in its broadest form on and off the page and screen.
  • Collaborative.
  • Inclusive. We welcome applications from a broad spectrum of people – those seeking academic careers, professionals who are returning to learning, artists who wish to develop their analytic and critical thinking skills.
  • Connected to local, national and international research streams. Both tutors have well-established research profiles with publications, and track records in convening public events in the field.
