The Centre for Women’s Studies seeks to consolidate and strengthen many of the college’s initiatives towards women’s education, research and interventions on gender issues.
The Centre not only takes up research and documentation in the field, but also seeks to focus on links between activism, intervention and academics. Working across languages, it hopes to build a local thrust.
The Centre endeavours to realize its aims of empowering women through seminars and workshops. The Centre also plans to network with national and international women’s groups to strengthen solidarity and to build resources for positive cultural interventions through theatre, film and social advertising. The initiatives of the Centre are focused on Teaching, Research, Training, Documentation, Field Action and Linkages.
The activities of the Centre are planned and organized by a team of faculty, some of whom are well recognized in the field of women and gender. With the objective of sensitizing the student community, the Centre has organized competitions as well as awareness programmes.
