All programs in the department of Sociology are premised on research and independent thinking. The department offers courses at both undergraduate and graduate level for a variety of research interests such as material culture, forms of knowledge, kinship, visuality and visual culture, sociality and subjectivity, identities and commodities, professions and institutions, culture studies, feminism, gender and sexuality, markets, and development. Simultaneously, we foreground sustained theoretical training and encourage interdisciplinary work. We are committed to exploring the disciplinary processes of ethnographic writing. The Department is establishing itself as a centre of research and envisions a vibrant doctoral programme that is alive to the plurality of South Asian cultures and societies and welcomes comparative analyses from field sites around the world. Accordingly, we have a dynamic group of researchers which adds a holistic dimension and dynamism to our research output.
