Unity Womens College Department of English

Postgraduate Department of English, KAHM Unity Women’s College, Manjeri, is organizing a UGC Sponsored National Seminar on ‘Popular Culture and Literature’ during the third week of June 2015. Papers are invited from Postgraduate students who are interested in participating in the seminar.

Theme and objective of the National Seminar

Scholars have always been preoccupied with the interrelation between Literature and Popular Culture. The National Seminar on Popular Culture and Literature for P G students would focus on the influence and transitions that have occurred due to various social, cultural, political, economic, and religious changes in the global arena, and their representations in literature and popular culture. Participants are encouraged to explore the uncertainties, anxieties, and complexities of our times and their representation in the recent developments in literary and artistic articulations. The objective of the seminar is to create a platform for P G students to share experiences about the interconnectedness, intertextuality, resistance and seamless possibilities of  new horizons of literature. It also aims at a meaningful discussion among professionals involved in the teaching of literature and language.
