MA in Modern Slavery Studies

Slavery has been a central issue in historical research and is now a
topic of increasing public concern in the contemporary world. This MA
offers students the opportunity to study slavery and emancipation in
various historical contexts and to explore the conditions under which
slavery continues to exist today. The programme engages with emerging
debates within the UK around issues of multiculturalism, globalisation,
poverty, and identity.

The full-time inter-disciplinary programme is delivered in two teaching
semesters from September to May. Students choose from a list of core and
optional modules including: Historiography of Slavery; Slavery in the
Modern World; Voices of Slavery; The Slave Trade: Abolition and
Suppressions; Bonded Labour in an Historical Perspective; The Demography
of Slavery; The Black Atlantic; Movement and Identity; Globalisation and
Poverty; The Foundations of Human Rights. Following this taught
component students prepare a dissertation under personal supervision
from staff at the Institute. The MA is available as a full-time one-year
programme or a part-time two-year programme. Standard UK postgraduate
higher education fees apply.

10 Bicentenary Scholarships (deadline 1st May 2007) are available for
postgraduate study in WISE on the MA in Modern Slavery Studies, MA in
Diversity, Culture and Identity and MA in Criminology and Human Rights.
