About the Journal

The Rupkatha Journal on Interdisciplinary Studies in Humanities derives its name from ‘rup’ (form) and ‘katha’ (words), which, when combined, mean ‘myth’ in Bengali. The journal gets its inspiration from the etymology and goes by the principle that anything which has a form, visual or mental, can come under focus. Rupkatha was founded as a non-profit non-commercial open access initiative in India in 2008 by Tirtha Prasad Mukhopadhyay and Tarun Tapas Mukherjee and the journal continues to support and spread awareness about OA in India and abroad.
