The PhD in Cultural Studies involves one year of coursework followed by supervised reading, writing and research for approximately 4 more years. The courses will be reading/writing intensive. Students will learn how to interpret complex texts, to understand intellectual debates that have formed the horizon of interdisciplinary cultural studies, formulate and discuss ideas and questions, and to write research papers. Our faculty includes scholars known for their analyses of contemporary culture in its inter-connections with political and economic processes. Distinguished visiting faculty from India and abroad will also be involved in PhD instruction at the Centre.
