Description

Cultural Studies. Instructor: Dr. Liza Das, Department of Humanities and Social Sciences, IIT Guwahati. This course targets students

and faculty of institutions offering undergraduate engineering programmes. It provides a general introduction to the field of Cultural Studies which has emerged as the most comprehensive and interdisciplinary field in the humanities and social sciences today. It incorporates both the views of culture as a way of life and as a contested site for human discourse and action. Knowledge of key concepts and approaches will equip students to understand and articulate themselves as cultural beings and not simply technologists. As an interdisciplinary course, it will be beneficial to students opting for several HSS courses offered by all engineering colleges and the IITs at the undergraduate level. Universities offering master degree programmes in Cultural Studies can use the content for an introductory course. (from nptel.ac.in)
