Liberal Arts

JSLH is a value frame or a particular ideal of education. It emphasizes the teacher as an exemplar. Performativity and commitment become important. A teacher becomes a legend who creates the folklore of liberal arts. The student is not a passive creature. She is a creator and inventor of a new self or a renewed self. She is a seeker, explorer and the syllabus becomes a map of possibilities. In a Deleuzian sense, liberal arts are not about tracing. Mapping is an act of reinvention; one explores, invents and rediscovers a territory. Pedagogy becomes crucial because it is the act of teaching that is the eventual educational act, a drama unfolding everyday around a canonical text, an invitation to re-reading, as an unfolding invention. These attributes and approach make JSLH one of the best colleges for humanities. For further information [click here]
