Introduction

MA Ecology, Culture & Society

Runaway climate change, mass extinctions, radical ecological transformations. We are living through profoundly unsettling times, and face equally uncertain futures. The MA Ecology, Culture, & Society offers the opportunity to engage with the urgency of contemporary socio-ecological challenges and to imaginatively explore ways of inhabiting the Earth otherwise.

The MA will take a distinctivelyinterdisciplinary and critical perspective. It will highlight the concept of“ecology” in an expanded sense and encompass the complex web ofinterconnections that bind people, animals, bodies, soils, ideas,technologies, practices, institutions, cultures, and histories with theirchanging environments. Drawing on perspectives from the humanities and thesocial sciences, this programme explores the many shifting relationshipsbetween natures and cultures around the world. It introduces critical new approachesto the connections between humans and animals inmore-than-human worlds, and it will enable you to develop a criticalunderstanding of the ways in which ecological issues are intertwined with the question of social justice, cultural difference, and decolonisation.

You willbe encouraged to explore the philosophical, cultural, political, and socialdimensions thatshape our understanding of contemporary socio-ecological issuesand to explore imaginative responses to them. You will also learn to develop andapply ecological perspectives on various forms of social, political, andcultural analysis.
