Chairperson’s Message

Welcome to the Department of English, a place to explore a rich variety of subject areas in the fields of language, linguistics, and literature. Established in February 2011 as the Department of Linguistics and renamed the Department of English in 2020, we now run degree programmes in BS (Linguistics and Literature), MPhil (Linguistics), MPhil (Literature), PhD (Linguistics) and PhD (Literature). Our passionate and internationally renowned academic team, engaged in producing research of national and international significance, provides an intellectually stimulating environment and necessary tools to undergraduate and postgraduate students to appreciate literature across historical, cultural and national boundaries.From classical texts to postcolonial literatures, from folk literature to global literature, from popular genres to digital humanities and film studies, our department offers an exciting range of courses in the respective disciplines. Through various theoretical approaches and literary genres, students are not only encouraged to explore literary works in terms of social relevance and aesthetic value but also trained to think and write critically.
