Course Summary

Ancestral Studies is an innovative new interdisciplinary field of study. Concerned with the social, cultural and biological contours of identity, it explores questions of who we are and of past generations engagements with, and definitions of, being and belonging through experiences of place, landscape, language, text, visual and material culture.

OVERVIEW

We have four main themes:

  • Ancestral voices
  • Ancestral bodies
  • Ancestral sites
  • Ancestral belonging.

Our MRes includes both taught and research elements. You will be required to undertake 60 to 90 credits worth of taught courses as well as independent study which represents some contribution to knowledge.

Thesis length: 20,000-30,000 words (including references, bibliography and appendices).
