About

Culture, Diaspora, Ethnicity (Part-time) programme at Birkbeck, University of London stretches across the social sciences and arts and humanities and explores debates on 'race' and racism, multiculture and postcoloniality; empire and the formation of modern Britain and contemporary transnational political communities, social identities and urban cultures.

Overview

Culture, Diaspora, Ethnicity (Part-time) programme at Birkbeck, University of London considers the connections between histories of colonisation and contemporary social formations and inequalities in the UK and how local debates on 'race' and racism are shaped by the global geopolitics of the twenty-first century.

The programme discusses connections between interlocking colonial histories across the globe and our ordinary, local, everyday life here in contemporary Britain. It focuses on a broad range of subjects such as histories of colonisation, systems of slavery, the concept of 'race' and the invention of 'the West'; colonial cultures, nationalisms, 'respectability' and the invention of 'whiteness'; racial theory and histories of criminalisation; histories of anti-racist and anti-fascist resistance; postcoloniality; theorising culture, community, hybridity and creolisation; postcolonial belonging, place, urban cultures and diaspora; contemporary racial nationalisms, religious revivalisms and 'the war on terror'; 'race' and 'beauty'; 'whiteness' and 'race', gender, sexuality and desire.
