Student Research

As a part of learning Sociology a number of our students have been regularly interning with Neeti Aayog and NGOs, like Pravah, Goonj, Swechha, Centre for Media and Communication and Himalayan Environmental Studies and Conservation Organization, to name a few. The students are also encouraged to do projects based on primary research. As a part of research they also make short ethnographic films. These films are available at Sociology Ethnographic Films. The Project reports are available in the Research Compendium.

Field trips are an important part of students’ research. In the year 2019-2020, the students visited Dharamshala and McLeodganj to study Tibetan medicine, paintings, everyday lives of the bikhunis, marriage systems and the impact of exile in terms of memory and home aspects of the Tibetan refugee community. The details of the field trip are available in the Lighthouse.

A day field visit to the National Museum was organised for B.A. Program Sociology to understand the relationship between History and Anthropology. The students documented their observations and experiences in a project report
