About

The Culture, Diaspora, Ethnicity programme at Birkbeck, University of London explores connections between interlocking colonial histories across the globe and our ordinary, local, everyday life here in contemporary Britain.

Overview

This interdisciplinary Culture, Diaspora, Ethnicity programme at Birkbeck, University of London stretches across the social sciences and arts and humanities and explores: 

  • histories and cartographies of 'race' and racism, multiculture and postcoloniality; empire and the formation of modern Britain and contemporary transnational political communities, social identities and urban cultures
  • connections between histories of colonisation and contemporary social formations and inequalities in the UK
  • how local debates on 'race' and racism are shaped by the global geopolitics of the twenty-first century.
The Postgraduate Diploma allows you to explore your interests in these subject areas and enables you to progress to, and complete, the MA Culture, Diaspora, Ethnicity if you wish.
