About Ashoka University, Department of Sociology and Anthropology
The undergraduate programme in Sociology and Anthropology (SOA) at Ashoka University is designed for students interested in cultivating an intellectually rigorous understanding of diverse social worlds and processes as they emerge, stabilise, transform and dissolve all around us.
The Department acknowledges the unique relationship between sociology and social anthropology as it has developed and flourished in India. While our faculty is actively engaged in long-term fieldwork and ethnographic research across a range of subjects and sites, as a collective, we emphasise the critical empiricism, theoretical engagement and comparative approach central to our best disciplinary traditions In doing so, we continuously work at and move between multiple scales and modes of analysis: across the ‘micro’ and the ‘macro’, the ‘general’ and the ‘particular’, the ‘local’ and the ‘global’, the ‘social’ and the ‘technical’, the ‘material’ and ‘abstract’, and the ‘qualitative’ and ‘quantitative’.
Our research and pedagogical practices also open up numerous possibilities for interdisciplinary explorations with students and scholars in allied fields of social thought and inquiry, including, history, economics, political science, psychology, philosophy, linguistics, environmental studies, computer science, planning and design, natural sciences, arts and aesthetics, law and media. This makes Sociology and Anthropology at once among the most grounded and fluid disciplines in the contemporary university.
