As the first UNESCO World City of Literature, home of the Edinburgh International Festival and a major cultural hub, Edinburgh is the ideal place for the study of intermediality, that is, the interrelations between different art forms and their signification.
Our taught Masters programme draws on world-class teaching and research expertise across media, from literature to film, music, painting, photography and visual culture more widely.
The programme makes our students conversant with intermedial theory and equips them with the critical tools and historical background for understanding and analysing a wide range of intermedial phenomena across different periods and cultures, with an emphasis on the modern and contemporary period.
Students are members of our research community and, as such, are encouraged to develop their own area of interest and expertise, with specially-designed option courses offering a detailed focus on the interplay between different art forms in, for instance, film adaptation, photo-literature, poetry and music, the graphic novel and modern screen cultures. This leads to a final dissertation or a practice-based project accompanied by a reflective essay, pursuing research interests further and developing both creative and research skills.
