Call for Papers (Vol 3, No 1, January 2011)

Ever since 'art' was separated from 'science', controversies and doubts have baffled human mind as to whether 'art' should at all be viewed as a separate sphere of study and practice, whether or not the two spheres share some common characteristics, whether science and art influence each other, and so on. In the next issue (Vol 3, No 1, January 2011) of Rupkatha Journal on Interdisciplinary Studies in Humanities, we seek to explore the interdisciplinary relationship between science and art. Possible topics for discussions are given below. But we are open to suggestions of inclusion of other relevant topics under the theme.
