Apoorva Iyengar

Assistant Professor


Students arrive with different backgrounds, interests and skills, and I believe that through the mode of teaching and conversing, a safe, accessible and engaging environment can be created. I position myself as a guide and not an instructor, and as a co-learner with the students. I believe in encouraging students to value their own lives and experiences as a means to understand and engage with the subjects. This pushes them generate questions and encourages them to develop a curious mind that leaps beyond the space of a class room or school.


My academic interests involve built heritage and urban conservation, material and object conservation and practices, archaeology, visual arts/ art history/ art theory, museology, architectural theory, literature, drawing and other visual representation practices.
