MA in Global Cinemas and the Transcultural

Duration: 1 Year Full Time, 2 or 3 Years Part Time

Entry Requirements: Minimum upper second class honours degree (or equivalent)

Mode of Attendance: Full Time or Part Time

The MA in Global Cinemas and the Transcultural offers students the unique opportunity to study in-depth regional cinemas outside the now standard research topographies, both geographical and theoretical, of mainstream cinema studies, so opening up avenues for advanced research in areas and methodologies as yet untapped. Alternatively, it provides an avenue of study for those simply wishing to obtain a post-graduate qualification in Cinema Studies without being confined to a European- and/or American-centric world-view.The degree is designed around a compulsory core module, Cinema, Nation and the Transcultural, that simultaneously challenges existing critical paradigms defining 'national cinema' in the simplistic terms of geographical zones of production and reception, while offering alternative methodological approaches to the study of cinema within the local/global, inter-cultural contexts of the post-modern world. The elective elements of the degree allow students the opportunity to specialize in one or more of the many regional cinemas on offer in the School: Japanese, Chinese (mainland, Hong Kong & Taiwanese), mainland and maritime South East Asian, Indian, Iranian, Middle Eastern and African). It also enables students to combine specialist film studies knowledge with a minor module in an Asian or African language or to advance their social and cultural knowledge of a given region through an ethnographic module. Alternatively, through our links with University of... [-]

M.A. in Indian Thought and Practices

The specialization in Indian Thought and Practices is a structured and intensive study with a substantial component of individual research. This program opens up new ways of entering the inquiries and practices of different Indian traditions. Both pedagogy and research will center on the learner as a seeker, an apprentice, who will be guided by a practitioner. The search may not necessarily take the form of a theoretical treatise. It may be a work of art, a poetic performance, and a meditative intervention.

The program prepares the students with skills to be independent researchers, undertake scholarly work, publish and pursue further research-based programs. Practitioners of different arts, craft and science would be able to deepen their pursuit through interdisciplinary inquiries into Indian traditions. It allows students to produce research-based creative outputs such as paintings, illustrations, musical compositions, performances and others as part of their study. Course Structure Seminar ... [-]

What values can the past bring to the fast-paced and swiftly changing present? How can we discover and interpret where the roots of the present lie? The contemporary moment offers us new opportunities and new technologies with which to explore the historical, bring to the fore people’s experiences of the past, and through that new understanding recreate and present new perspectives on heritage.

We envision the Public History and Heritage Interpretation as an opportunity to learn new ways of engaging with historical sites, monuments and institutions and thus address the contemporary challenges of interpreting history. This specialization will empower students to include in their interpretations of heritage the diverse voices that have been ignored so far and so engage with history outside conventional academic practice. This specialization will create professionals who have the ability to transform museums, heritage sites, and archives into spaces that dynamically interpret the past by reimagining history with new technologies....
