Course content

This programme enables you to study cultural phenomena, practices and texts at an advanced level, critically engaging with theories and methodologies of transdisciplinary cultural research.

The programme supports a range of research topics in visual and urban cultural studies, with a particular interest in:

  • place and memory
  • spatial violence and urban disintegration
  • post-socialist cities of Eastern Europe
  • visual and semiotic landscapes
  • materiality and spatiality of writing
  • book space and architectures of reading
  • photography and visual knowledges
  • image-text-theory
  • experimental publishing
  • curatorial practices and multimodality in representation of research.

Your project will benefit from the diverse research expertise of staff from the Edinburgh School of Architecture & Landscape Architecture (ESALA), from our collaborative exchanges with academic colleagues and research students across the University, and a broad range of contacts with local and international research networks, cultural and heritage institutions and archives.
