Summary

This ground-breaking course is timely and necessary, taking black British writing seriously as a discipline.

Why study MA Black British Literature at Goldsmiths?

  • This degree is a world first. There’s nowhere else you can study black British writing in such an in-depth way – in the actual country where the writing is produced.

  • It’s timely and necessary. Black and minority ethnic people continue to be massively underrepresented in academia, and texts written by black authors are often missing from university course lists. The MA Black British Literature is a vital step in increasing intellectual awareness of, and amplifying, these black British voices. In studying this Masters, you will become part of this process.

  • You’ll be looking at an extremely diverse range of texts, analysing work from novelists, poets, short story writers, essayists, and playwrights. You’ll also locate these writers in their historical context, gaining an understanding of the history of black people in Britain and how they were represented and perceived.

  • We welcome applications from those seeking academic careers, professionals who are returning to learning, and performers and artists who wish to develop their analytic and critical thinking skills.

  • You’ll be based in London and have access to all the resources the city offers including use of the Black Plays Archive at the Royal National Theatre for fieldwork and research tasks.
