It examines the history of the institutionalization of English Studies in India, traces the beginnings of Indian English Poetry, Indian English Novel, different Englishes practiced across the globe, while critically analyzing the problems of teaching and learning English Literature. It also questions the western canon, looks at the emerging Indian literary Canon and talks about decolonizing the mind. We try and expose students to Indian Literatures in English translation, archived from literature in the Bhasha languages. And lastly we look at an integral part of the curricula at colleges and universities across the globe - literary theory and criticism, beginning with classical criticism, including romantic criticism, new criticism, feminist theories, deconstruction and ending with contemporary theories.
