Prof Farhana Ibrahim, Head of the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences at IIT Delhi, highlighted the program’s features, saying, “The program offers a unique opportunity for students to explore courses across traditional disciplines, as well as to forge new synergies across existing Master’s programs offered by the Department, viz. Cognitive Science and Economics. Its position at IIT Delhi provides it with a unique vantage point for creating a new corpus of knowledge, populating new types of archives, and developing critical techniques to steer humanities and social science research from the global south.”
