Study of Socio-Ecology

This interdisciplinary project focuses on the study of socio-ecology through field visits, research-methods, and documentation. It covers 5 frameworks: Habitat, Development, and Ecology; Community, Practices, and Imprints; History, Heritage, and Change; Confluences, Conversations, and Linkages; and Aesthetics, Expression, and Manifestation. Students will be immersed in real-world contexts and be exposed to diverse ecological practices and communities, with the goal of gaining a deeper understanding of the complex relationship between society, culture, ecology, craft, design, and art. This year, 14 groups travel to different locations in India such as Naggar Valley, Wayanad, Varanasi, Assam and Meghalaya.
