In a critical encounter of different humanities disciplines, the course enquires into their different analytical practices in postcolonial studies. You will be discussing with teachers in history, literature, archaeology, social work, and film studies. They will explain their positions and practice of postcolonial perspectives when they carry out research on current and past events and phenomena, the students are challenged to reflect on the interdisciplinarity of the field and develop their own individual academic positions.


Roughly 15 minutes with a bike from the city centre, you will find Linnaeus University’s campus. It is like a small society with the university, student accommodation, and student life. Here you become part of a creative knowledge environment.

What will you come across on an excursion in Växjö – the city of contrasts? You will find good restaurants, a celebrated hockey team, and cozy cafés where you can enjoy a latte with lingonberry flavour. In Växjö, beautiful nature is always just around the corner; the city is surrounded by lakes and forests. Students like the combination of the city centre and the active student life on campus. Your dream of the future starts here!
