Course description/Objective: This course would require the scholar to engage in guided research on a topic pertinent to her/his area of interest. The main objective of this course is to train the scholar in framing research questions and conducting research on her own research topic. The role of the faculty is visualized here as a guide who acquaints the scholar with various underpinnings of her topic. The theoretical, philosophical and socio-historical aspects of the topic will be discussed and thereafter, the scholar will be expected to look for readings/texts which engage with these aspects. The scholar will finally prepare the reading list and course design in close consultation with the course coordinator within a month of the beginning of Semester II.
On the successful completion of the course it is envisaged that the research scholar will be able to develop a broad reading list which will facilitate the process of her research.
