About the Department

Since its inception the Department of English has focused on providing a humanistic perspective to the study of language and literature. The faculty at the department come from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds, interests and orientations. Some of our special interest areas include Cultural Studies, Postcolonial studies, Film studies, Theatre and Performance Studies, Gender Studies, and Classical and Contemporary Literature.

The department fosters special interest student associations, and conducts activities, such as literary fests, debating competitions, book exhibitions, film screenings, art appreciation workshops, writing workshops, and quiz competitions. It also encourages participative dialogue within the larger community through programmes like Republic Day Lecture Series, Seminars, Panel Discussions, and Colloquiums on topics of contemporary cultural and political significance.

In response to the changing contexts and pedagogical priorities of teaching English in a multilingual and multicultural milieu, such as ours, the faculty strive to equip students with specific skills, perspectives and ethical orientations mediated through the study of various texts, genres and narratives. The curriculum negotiates the diverse range of literature across genres with the intention of communicating to the students the aesthetic joy and the sheer thrill of literature and language.
