University of Dhaka

Founded in 1921, The University of Dhaka has always had the mission of uplifting the educational standards of the people of the region. It was initially meant to provide tertiary education to people who didn’t have access to higher studies till then. Subsequently, it has contributed significantly to the socio-cultural and political development of what was once East Bengal and then East Pakistan, and is now Bangladesh.

Since its establishment, the university has been fulfilling the hopes and aspirations of its students and their parents. It has, of course, not only been a lighthouse of learning, but has also acted as a torch-bearer of the people of the region in issues such as democracy, freedom of expression, and the need for a just and equitable society. It has always been associated with high quality education and research in which students as well as faculty members and alumni have played their parts. The University of Dhaka’s role has expanded beyond its classrooms and research labs during different crises the country has had to face since 1947. In many ways, thus, the university is unique, for it has played a major role in the creation of the independent nation-state of Bangladesh in 1971.

Mission

To reinforce the critical capacity of the students by applying theoretical models drawn from Europe, North America, and Asia.

Vision

To strengthen the performance skills of the students by acting in a play by one of the following playwrights of Bangla Theatre: Rabindranath Tagore, Selim Al Deen, Syed Shamsul Hague and Mamunur Rashid, and Abdullah Al Mamun.

Department of Theatre and Performance Studies, University of Dhaka, is a legendary institution in Bangladesh for the practice and experimentation of oriental and occidental theatre. The department has had a great impact on developing the cultural initiatives and environment of Dhaka University for the past 15 years by regularly organizing the University of Dhaka Central Theatre Festival. The focus of the department is on practice-based research through confrontations with audiences and field movements to make the academic process much more organic.

It is a great pleasure for us that our department has achieved vibrant prestige in the cultural arena of Bangladesh. Currently, the Department of Theatre and Performance Studies, University of Dhaka, has become a special phenomenon in the international academic and cultural ground, with its sparkling theatrical productions, participation, and organizing many research seminars, international symposiums, and international theatre festivals.

Besides our offer of Graduation, Post-graduation, M.Phil. and Ph.D. degrees in the field of Theatre and Performance, we intend to carry on the research, practice, and experimentation of this subject with indigenous and global perspectives. The department emphasizes the practical and dialogic process of teaching, where our students and teachers are involved to understand the world theatre history, theory, design, and performances, as well as making an organic ground to confront the socio-political human relations and views in terms of both aesthetic and applied theatre. Our curriculum looks forward to making this discipline a unique icon to mark the changes in civilization. Theory, method, laboratory courses, and fieldwork, are all regarded as important components of this curriculum.

We have world-class faculty members, who care deeply for their students. Our 11 full-time faculty members and 7 part-time faculties believe that creating close and interactive teacher-student relationships aid in realizing the basic essence of this unique art. We are proud of our faculty members, many of whom have achieved numerous national and international awards for their special contributions to the field of theatre, film, Publication, and performance. Awards such as Bangladesh Shilpokola Padak, Nationa Film Award (Best Actor, Best Designer), Nandikar National Award (India), Best Book Award by National Library and Archives, Munir Chowdhury Padak, Bangladesh Cine Journalists Association (BCJA) Award, Bangladesh Sangbadik Samiti (BSS) Award, Bangladesh Mahila Parishad Award, Tanushree Padak, Performance Award, Nagarik Natyangan Award, and SM Solaiman Memorial Medal are among the notable ones achieved by our faculty members. Three of our faculties are doing their Ph.D. study at abroad by achieving The Commonwealth Scholarship and Bangabandhu Scholarship. All these accomplishments encourage the students to always do their best.

I would like to pay my respect to each moment in the past 100 years of Dhaka University. I express my gratitude and heartiest thanks to all the respected faculty members, beloved students, office staff, and university authorities.

Linguistics as a discipline: Language is considered a crucial human phenomenon. Linguistics, the scientific study of language and its elements, contributes to our knowledge of human society by investigating the nature of human communication. There exists a rich history of studying linguistics in many parts of the world, especially in ancient India, Greece, and China.

The importance of this discipline is now recognized throughout the world. As a branch of modern human science, linguistics deals with language, its components, and language-related domains, ranging from natural language processing and artificial intelligence of information and communication technology to neurolinguistic aspects and language pathology. Linguistics makes use of subjects such as philosophy, sociology, anthropology, literary criticism, semiotics, biology, mathematics, and statistics. ‘Linguistics’, thus ‘is an essentially outward-looking discipline combined well with other degree subjects and courses.’
