Delhi University To Launch Multi-Disciplinary Centre On Tribal Studies-Education News
The Delhi University will start a multi-disciplinary centre on tribal studies to educate students about the contribution of tribal leaders to society during various eras of Indian history, a senior varsity official said on Wednesday.
The proposal in this regard will be presented at a meeting of the Academic Council on Friday, the official added. An ordinance issued recently said the new centre will have seven major objectives, which include understanding the term “tribe” from an India-centric perspective and studying the “social, cultural, linguistic, religious, economic, and environmental diversity and commonalities” of different tribes. The students will get to “study and document various Lok traditions of India’s tribes including their indigenous/traditional knowledge”, according to the ordinance. The centre also aims to highlight the role of tribal leaders in India’s struggle for freedom and “bring out to prominence the unsung heroes among them”, the ordinance added.
