Department of Cultural Studies



The Department of Cultural Studies was established in the year 2014 under the School of Humanities and Social Sciences. Cultural Studies is an emerging field of study which involves looking at culture from multidisciplinary perspectives. In Cultural Studies, culture is viewed as the ground for production of meanings, where meanings are circulated and exchanged, instead of being fixed. Drawing on inputs from various disciplines, Cultural Studies examines the ways in which meanings are constructed and used for imparting different ideologies, discourses, and knowledge. The Department is committed to explore, enrich, and disseminate critical thinking on the cultures of North-East India through various interdisciplinary approaches. Students from various disciplines are welcome to join us to undertake new approaches to the study of areas such as ethnicity, folklore, gender, tourism and media.
