    Course start date:  Wed 24 Apr 2024

    Tutors:  Katie Goss
    In this course students will be introduced to theories of posthumanism that suggest ways we can embrace ‘monstruous’ identities and ‘mutant’ forms of knowing.

    Last Few Places
    Course start date:  Wed 1 May 2024

    Location on this date:  Keeley Street

    Tutors:  Shyam Shah
    Arguably, no other music has been as influential as Cuban music in the 20th century. From being the foundation of Salsa music in the Americas, to its return home in Africa, the Cuban sound has travelled far and wide. But how did this relatively small island in the Caribbean have such a large musical influence, and why was it so readily accepted?
