Course content

his course offers you the opportunity to explore LGBTQIA+ identities, communities, and cultures from a range of disciplinary perspectives.

You'll encounter primary materials from across the Arts and Humanities—which may include literary texts, auto/biographies, films and documentaries, visual artworks, manifestos and zines, and sound recordings and songs—along with cutting-edge theory and criticism. Throughout the programme, you will benefit from research-led teaching by internationally recognised experts in queer studies, while also being guided and supported in your own original research.
You'll be supported by a rich schedule of research seminars, conferences, and reading groups, and you'll be invited to play an important role in the thriving research culture of the faculty. Postgraduate life is channelled through the Humanities Research Centre, a vibrant interdisciplinary hub that enables you to form close social and intellectual bonds.
