The Centre would work in collaboration with various governmental, non-governmental and academic institutions in pursuit of its objectives. In particular, liaison would be actively sought with literature, comparative literature, and cultural studies departments of various renowned educational institutions within the state of West Bengal (such as Presidency University, Jadavpur University, Calcutta University and others), within India (such as Delhi University, Jawaharlal Nehru University, Benaras Hindu University, University of Mumbai, University of Hyderabad, Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Ashoka University and others), as well as beyond the country (University of Oxford, University of Cambridge, Harvard University, Yale University, Stanford University, Duke University, York University, University of Kent, Hong Kong University, and others). Government departments such as the Ministry of Culture, initiatives such as Indian Literature Abroad, and institutes such as the Indian Council for Cultural Relations, Sahitya Akademi, would be approached for securing funding for studies involving indigenous literature, languages and culture and their various interfaces with the discipline of law. Specifically for studies and research involving indigenous languages prevalent in the various states of India, sponsorship may be sought for from the respective state governments and related departments. Cultural embassies from various countries might also be approached in this regard for funding of projects, dissemination seminars and conferences. For studies involving popular culture and media possibilities of private sponsorship may also be explored. The Centre would also like to develop focused courses including courses delivered in distance education mode, offered to candidates from outside the university, in order to raise the funds necessary for its various activities. State-sponsored schemes such as the Scheme for Promotion of Academic and Research Collaboration would also be given due consideration as potential sources of necessary funds. The alumni of the university might also be approached for both collaborative purposes as well as raising of funds for the various activities of the Centre. At this stage, the Centre does not seek any direct financial support from the university, other than permission to use existing infrastructure and human resources including working hours of the faculty and staff involved.
