Centre for Advanced Research in Arts and Social Sciences (CARASS)
The University of Dhaka has recently set up a Centre for Advanced Research in Arts and Social Sciences (CARASS). Apart from providing facilities for higher research in Arts and Social Sciences, the Centre will offer M. Phil and Ph. D. degrees. The Centre will organize seminars, symposia, workshops and learned lectures. To facilitate research, an international standard Library will be set up by the Centre. CARASS will also house Dhaka University Museum which is expected to archive the documents and memorabilia relating to the developments of the University of Dhaka since 1921. The Centre will offer fellowships for local and overseas scholars. One important objective of the Centre will be to develop link programmes with international Centres of Excellence.
The 11 storied building housing CARASS is located between the Atomic Energy Centre and the Teachers Student Centre of the University of Dhaka. CARASS will start functioning from July 2008.
