This course has a limited number of places (it is controlled access). In previous years we have been able to provide places for all students that apply but that may not continue to be the case.
This course will explore the relationship between culture and (in)security with a particular focus on the (in)security dilemmas of minorities and migrants within a world of nation-states. In so doing, our discussion will draw upon a variety of theoretical perspectives within security studies.
This course is delivered through a combination of seminars and workshops totalling a minimum of 24 hours across Winter Term. This course includes a reading week in Week 6 of Winter Term, and a review session will be held at the start of the Spring Term to prepare for the online assessment.
