We are pleased to inform you that Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts has re-launched its bi-annual Journal ‘Kalākalpa’ in July 2017. Kalākalpa addresses itself to a holistic understanding of the arts, not as an activity dissociated from life but as a response to it. Its aim is to foster an active dialogue amongst the scholars of various disciplines. The Journal provides a forum for scholarly articles, research notes and book reviews of the highest quality from cultures around the world and will cover the following field of disciplines: Gender Studies, Archaeology, Anthropology, Art History, Linguistics, Literature, Musicology, Dance, Religious Studies, Philosophy, Sociology, Diaspora, etc. It welcomes original research with new ideas, pertinent to an area of specialization. So far we have successfully published six issues, and the upcoming Guru Purnima issue is scheduled to be launched in July 2019. In this connection scholars from all across the globe are requested to contribute articles for the upcoming issue.

Articles will be selected on the merit of research. Submissions should comply with the journal guidelines.
