e-flux announcement

Just gone out on the e-flux mailing list, so we thought we might as well post it here also (read on after the break):

Announcing ambitious MA courses and PhD programme in the Arts, Humanities, and Cultural Institutions at the Institute for Modern and Contemporary Culture (IMCC), School of Social Sciences, Humanities and Languages, University of Westminster, London.


MA Museums, Galleries and Contemporary Culture is led by a team of international curators, artists, and critical theorists; and innovative teaching is based around case studies of professional practice with major institutions in London such as Tate Britain and Museum of London. The programme offers students in-depth and insider knowledge of current issues in the arts and museum sector.

MA Visual Culture balances historical/theoretical debates in the field of visual culture studies with a rigorous interrogation of cultural practices across: capitalism and culture; the material culture of the city; activism and popular politics; institutions and their archives; globalization and new media ecologies.

MA Cultural and Critical Studies is an interdisciplinary course offering advanced theoretical study of issues across a range of fields including cultural studies, critical and textual theory, history, aesthetics, visual culture, new media, and urban-spatial studies.

MA English Literature critically explores the history of literature in relation to the social, cultural and political circumstances from which it emerges, with a particular focus on the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and on London.

As a PhD student based in the IMCC, you will be in an ambitious and supportive research environment, with a tailor-made supervisory team, that provides you with the intellectual and professional skills to realize your research goals. You will also take the ‘Knowledge, Cultural Memory, Archives, and Research’ module, which is contributed to by numerous members of the Institute. The module offers a critical introduction to research methods, focusing on knowledge formation in the arts, humanities, and cultural institutions through interdisciplinary approaches to literature, visual, material, and spatial cultures.
