The emergence of digital communication technologies and convergence offers exciting possibilities for media production and dissemination. The CCMP consolidates the praxis base of CMCS (including media production and theorising on practice) and expands its scope to include new media, community based participatory initiatives and the production of multi-media and web based materials. The CCMP also anchors the production and skill-based courses of the School.
Cultural Studies in India today is a diverse cross-disciplinary field that engages in an impassioned way with contemporary social political, historical and economic contexts reflecting on questions of ideology, identity, power, and discourse. The rationale behind this Centre is further engagement both in terms of research and pedagogy focusing particularly on the contemporary. The CSCC also anchors the courses that belong broadly to the area of cultural studies, media studies, critical theory, visual culture, digital cultures, new media and development media.
The MARC consolidates the audio-visual and graphics services currently offered by CMCS. It works in tandem with the CCMP to respond to the needs of other Centres and Schools within TISS, to facilitate the documentation of their work and design of their publicity and teaching materials. The Digital Archive has built up a valuable collection of around 3000 films as well as photographs and footage. It is in the process of making selected sections of the archive available on the internet. It also networks with other organisations to promote dissemination of films through screenings, film festivals and other events.
