“Rhapsody”: A Collection of Critical and Creative Writing
The Department of English has an active wing of ex-students that organizes Annual Alumni Meet every year. It also organizes memorial lectures and talk-programmes. The Alumni Association also has a printed spokesman in the name of “Rhapsody” that seeks to give wide room to the critical and creative writings especially of the present and ex-students belonging to the department.
Current Project of Publication of Textbook
Presently the department has engaged itself in a book-project on the UGC formulated CBCS curriculum. Witnessing the want of student-friendly book specifically designed for the syllabus of CBCS and with the objective to provide a handbook to the students affiliated to the recently schematized CBCs system, the department is looking forward to make a significant contribution in this field. It is likely to be published in August 2018.
