Dr. Shilpa Khatri Babbar
(M.A.(Sociology), M.Phil, NET, Ph.D)
My prime objective as a lecturer has been to guide and facilitate the students in understanding the essentials of Sociology and linking it up with the day to day events of life, targeting the rejuvenation and renovation of the crumbling social structure. .Education can achieve its true and comprehensive essence only when approached from an interdisciplinary angle. is my conviction. This justifies my specialization in Medical Sociology.
My biggest strength has been my academic ability and my talent to convert a classroom lecture from a monologue into a well comprehensible and an interactive dialogue.
Being a patient listener, a critical thinker and critical analyzer of problems I have proved to be a successful counsellor and mediator. Sensitivity to diversity of race, class, gender and other ascribed statuses along with the ability to comprehend the thoughts of today.s youth has gone a long way in assisting this expertise.
I have graduated in Sociology Honours from Jesus and Mary College (JMC), Delhi University (DU) and was awarded the Geeta Chopra Award for outstanding merit.
I pursued Masters in Sociology at Delhi School of Economics (DSE), DU and received M.S.A. Rao Scholarship. I did my M.Phil from DSE, DU and scored the highest percentage in my research paper on .Tuberculosis: Illness, treatment and cure from a sociological perspective..
My doctorate was also an extension of my M.Phil research focussing on .Social Perceptions and Management of Tuberculosis in Delhi . A Sociological Study.. I did my PhD under the eminent guidance of Late Prof. Aneeta A. Minocha and after her demise continued under Prof. Tulsi Patel.
I cleared my NET (UGC) and also received Junior Research Fellowship.
I have been teaching since 1999 starting from Janaki Devi Memorial College, DU and then at JMC, DU. I joined Vivekananda Institute of Professional Studies (Affiliated to Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University), Delhi in 2004 and have been an integral part of it since then.
