Department of Culture & Language

The Department of Culture and Languages aims to create socio-historical consciousness in the masses for promotion of cultural sensitivity and culturally driven practices for creation of peace and harmony. The environment of the Department and education system of University will train students to negotiate between the local and the international platforms with new knowledge by blending both the narratives. The objectives is to provide holistic education that equips students with knowledge and skills to empirically analyze their past, present surroundings and appreciate cultural diversity to generate a sense of ownership for the historic diversity of the region which have enriched this culture.

The society of Pakistan is a diverse and complex where people have multiple cultural beliefs, speak many languages and hold varied costumes. The tangible and intangible human development of this country is a challenge in such a culturally diverse country. The development actors local and non-local are usually connected with dominant international agenda. The discourse designed by the development actors ignores the ground realities and remains alienated from the people and their real life situations. There has been a dire need in our context to develop an alternative discourse of development which must be built on the local narrative that also links with the international perspective. The Department by evolving and highlighting the perceived narrative will create an understanding of development practices to indigenous culture.
