Course summary

Global British Studies is an exciting field that takes an interdisciplinary approach to the study of Britain in a global context over the past two centuries. The programme will challenge assumptions that Britain simply made the modern world and instead encourage students to unravel complex and at times contradictory ways in which an imperial metropole like Britain has been connected to the rest of the world. In light of Brexit and public debates on British identity and the legacies of Empire, this programme provides historical perspectives on some of the biggest contemporary questions.
