Interdisciplinary Cultural Studies

The Department of Interdisciplinary Cultural Studies provides an arena, open to those who seek to strive for, learn, and build, scholarship which examines a variety of cultural phenomena as human activities from regional and linguistic perspectives, as well as from a cross-cutting viewpoint transcending boundaries between different genres. The department is divided into three courses: Culture and Representation, Cultural Anthropology, and Comparative Literature and Culture. Each with its own unique history, the courses retain a relatively high degree of independence and also differ in their research style and approach, but they have a shared purpose of pioneering scholarship in cutting-edge, interdisciplinary fields.

Whilst paying due attention to existing academic frameworks relating to philosophy and thought, religion, history, literature, arts, and sociology, not losing our stance of pursuing a form of scholarship demanded in the present - it is a department where the loosely joined three courses compete on, and make the most of, their individualities.
