Research Areas

The HMW Department is unique as it traverses several major areas of intellectual interests, including cultural studies, philosophy, and creative writing practice and pedagogy. The unifying rubric that defines the Department’s research work can be stated as “Critical Humanities and Everyday Life,” which is a terrain of philosophical complexity sourced by both critical theory at large and by practical and grounded experiences in modernity. In this terrain, humanism is de-normativized while everyday life is re-articulated.
