MA in 18th-Century Studies

At King's College London with the British Museum

This MA consists of a core module, a dissertation and two modules chosen from a wide range of options.

The course is taught in part by experts from the British Museum and will enable students to engage with the unique, diverse and rich collections of cultural institutions in central London, including the British Museum, the National Portrait Gallery, the Royal Society and the Hunterian Museum.

The core module of the course explores constructions of the Enlightenment, then and now, through frameworks such as race, gender, class, intellectual networks and material culture, and invites students to analyse ideas, objects, texts and arts of the eighteenth century.
