About

The Cultural Studies programme offered by The University of Edinburgh enables you to study cultural phenomena, practices and texts at an advanced level, critically engaging with theories and methodologies of transdisciplinary cultural research.

Overview

The Cultural Studies programme offered by The University of Edinburgh supports a range of research topics in visual and urban cultural studies, with a particular interest in:

  • place and memory
  • spatial violence and urban disintegration
  • post-socialist cities of Eastern Europe
  • visual and semiotic landscapes
  • materiality and spatiality of writing
  • book space and architectures of reading
  • photography and visual knowledges
  • image-text-theory
  • experimental publishing
  • curatorial practices and multimodality in representation of research.

Your project will benefit from the diverse research expertise of staff from the Edinburgh School of Architecture & Landscape Architecture (ESALA), from our collaborative exchanges with academic colleagues and research students across the University, and a broad range of contacts with local and international research networks, cultural and heritage institutions and archives.

Training and support

In addition to regular meetings with your supervisor, you will participate in postgraduate seminars and conferences and have opportunities to experiment with publications and curatorial projects.

Programme Structure

  • You will be required to complete two courses selected in consultation with your supervisor and a 20,000-word dissertation based on your independent research. 
  • The coursework will provide methodological and theoretical grounding for your research project.
