Jawaharlal Nehru University School of Arts and Aesthetics - JNUSAA

The School of Arts and Aesthetics has a strong research profile that informs its teaching. Their innovative courses attract students from disciplines like art history, architecture, literature and the social sciences on the one hand and cinema and performance practitioners on the other hand who wish to engage with the theoretical and historical context of the arts. Its teaching fulfils research and employment needs within the wider domain of culture, media, Indian heritage and the arts. It is one of the few places in India that offers post-graduate degree courses in the theoretical and critical study of the cinematic, visual and performing arts. Moreover, it is the only place in India where these disciplines are offered in one integrated programme that allows students to understand the individual arts in relation to one another as well as in a broader context of history, sociology, politics, semiotics, gender and cultural studies. The three streams of study offered at the school are Visual Studies, Theatre and Performance Studies and Cinema Studies.The pedagogic approach of the SAA recognises that it no longer suffices to study a work of art as an ‘object’ in isolation, apart from the social forces that shape and give it meaning. The teaching here adopts a multidisciplinary approach drawing on insights from the fields of anthropology, history, media and cultural studies. Students are introduced to a range of research methods that combine archival, ethnographic, theoretical and cultural approaches.
