About the Department
The Department of English, one of the oldest departments of the University, was established in 1986, and since its inception, the Department has been the hub of teaching and research activity, attracting a cross-section of students and research scholars from all over the country. It has established itself as a stronghold of Comparative Literature, fostering Comparative Literary Studies between English and other literatures. In recent years, Translation Studies, Gender and Feminist Studies, Cultural Studies, Ecocritical Studies, Subaltern Studies and Disability Studies too have emerged as thrust areas, inspiring inter-disciplinary and intra-disciplinary insights among faculty and students alike. At the Postgraduate level, the Department of English offers courses in poetry, drama, prose and fiction of canonical British Literature, American Literature, and other National literatures thus offering a good training for UGC-NET aspirants, and all those who are keen in furthering their research and academic output.
