Course summary

MPhil in Caribbean Studies offers you the opportunity to study the Caribbean through a interdisciplinary and cross-cultural perspective. The Yesu Persaud Centre for Caribbean Studies offers a varied selection of research expertise, ranging from salvery in the 18th century to disaster law and culture.

Course Overview

At the start of the academic year, you will be welcomed by our department. You will work with your supervisor to create a calendar plan for the year that is bespoke for you and your studies. Through independent research and regular meetings with your supervisor you will develop your research project.

Each year, your work will also be read and assessed by other academic staff in your field. The final goal of the research degree is the production of your thesis. You will write 80,000 words (excluding footnotes, bibliography and appendices) on a topic of your choice; and be examined by an internal and external examiner in a viva.

Research Themes

Current areas of research expertise are: Slavery and empire in the 18th and 19th centuries; Caribbean maritime worlds and networks; white identities; Caribbean writing in French and Spanish; postcolonial Caribbean texts; pre-1900 English Caribbean literatures; women's writing and feminist theory; disaster law and culture; slavery and law; the Haitian Revolution; postcolonial studies, world literature, literary and cultural theory; gender and slavery; enslaved runaways and maroons. Students will be supervised by faculty members with expertise in these areas.

Teaching and Learning

You will develop your research project through a combination of independent research and regular meetings with your supervisor(s). The supervisory relationship is at the heart of your research. Your supervisor(s) are experts in their field who will guide you throughout your degree and will agree upon a programme of reading, research and writing with you.
