PG Diploma in Indian Aesthetics

Course Description

JPM’s year-long, postgraduate diploma in Indian Aesthetics 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 5000 years of Indian visual art and aesthetics, encompassing premodern, modern, and contemporary forms as well as popular and folk traditions.

 

Understanding regnant philosophical and religious tenets is crucial to studying Indian aesthetics; as such, Vedic, Buddhist, Jaina, Hindu-Agamic, Tantric, and Islamic doctrines are analyzed for their influence on architecture, sculpture, and painting over time. The course also examines how aesthetic theories and texts as well as shastric concepts and precepts contribute to an understanding of Indian art. Interdisciplinary in nature, Indian Aesthetics places illustrated manuscript paintings in their literary context, concluding with the study of the visual paradigms of colonialism, nationalism, modernism, and postmodernism.

 

The Indian Aesthetics faculty comprises internationally renowned scholars who ensure that the visual material presented is broad-based geographically, historically, culturally, and materially.
