Module overview

This unit investigates how cultural texts have been produced, disseminated and consumed across national boundaries within transnational cultural flows since the mid-20th century. Looking at fiction, literary, documentary and theoretical essays, memoirs and photography produced by artists and thinkers from across the world, the unit examines theoretical concepts that engage with transnational models of hybridisation, cultural migration and the idea of place and displacement. Throughout, we will engage closely with critical approaches that consider the implications of class, ethnicity, race, gender and cultural translation. We shall also look at the role of centres and peripheries in the formation of transnational identities and communities.
