Summary

This pathway of our MA Literary Studies degree aims to introduce you to a wide range of texts and issues in the literature of the Caribbean and the Caribbean diaspora to highlight significant movements relative to the social, political and historical contexts impacting upon these new literatures.

Why study the MA Literary Studies: Literature of the Caribbean and its Diasporas pathway? - You'll be introduced to a wide range of Caribbean texts, and gain an understanding of the social, political and historical contexts that impact these literatures. This includes history, memory, the impacts of Colonialism, post-Colonialism, and Globalisation. We'll be studying texts either in English or in English translation.

  • You will be able to further develop your interest in the literature of the Caribbean and its diasporas through a 15,000-word dissertation to be submitted at the end of your programme of study.

  • You'll have the opportunity to pursue your wider interests by studying three options from the large provision of the department, choosing at least one of these in an area that is relevant to Caribbean, diasporic, or post-colonial literature.

  • The convenor of this pathway is Professor Joan Anim-Addo who has recently been honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award for ‘invaluable contributions to literature and to literary and cultural studies’ by leading US literary quarterly journal, Callaloo.

  • In studying for this pathway, you will be able to rely on the expertise and materials available at Goldsmiths’ Caribbean Centre.
