The University Department of English is committed to provide quality education in the field of literary studies in English. The department has introduced distinctive and innovative courses at the MA and M.Phil and encourages research work in contemporary writing with fresh perspectives such as postcolonial, feminist, comparative and cultural studies. The focus is on the teaching of literatures in English and English translation in the context of their relevance to Indian students today. The aim is to teach literature with perspectives and methodologies that will enable students to critically evaluate not just the texts they study but also the world they live in. The curriculum is designed with the objective of contextualizing and contemporizing literary studies. Seminar style teaching with continuous assessment through presentations and projects are encouraged. Interactive teaching and mentoring establishes rapport between students and teachers. Having gained a critical insight students learn to question rather than listen passively to lectures.
