PG Diploma in Indian Aesthetics

Course Description

Introduced in 1999, Jnanapravaha Mumbai’s academic year-long, Postgraduate Diploma/Certificate Course in Indian Aesthetics (IA) examines the development of visual forms in historical and discursive context. Crossing the disciplines of art history, archaeology, architecture, anthropology, literature and philosophy, the course treats roughly 5.000 years of Indian visual art and aesthetics, encompassing premodern, modern and contemporary forms as well as popular traditions. IA scholars comprise internationally renowned academics who ensure that the visual material presented is broad-based geographically, historically, culturally, and materially. Over the years, in keeping with JPM’s mission, the programme has evolved to include subjects of current research.
