Decolonisation: A Search for Alternatives

Anupam Nagar (Editor) Tapas Chakraborty (Editor) Adesh Pal (Editor)
Synopsis It has taken more than half a century for us to realize that the colonial system of education has made us cripples-intellectually, morally, emotionally and spiritually. Even today, we are carrying the burden of the massive colonial structure. Any one can see the colonial structure on the mindset in public and private life. In industry and business, in administration and even in the universities and other educational institutions. Decolonizing process, obviously involves a massive effort like what happened during the freedom struggle. The responsibility lies with the community, with the teaching community specially. We must shoulder the responsibility and produce alternative ideologies and alternative materials. The present volume entitled "Decolonization : A Search for Alternatives". Comprising of the articles read in the National Seminar on "Decolonizing English Education in India’ (16-18 January, 2001), organized by the Department of English, North Gujarat University, Patan, is a sincere effort in this direction. The twenty-one essays compiled in this collection have been divided into four sections. The essays in the first section attempt at defining the process of decolonization from cultural, philosophical and pedagogical points of view. The second section critiques, contests and offers various perspectives on the theory. The third section of the book attempts to map out the course of English studies in India and simultaneously offers some indigenous and pragmatic models of syllabi restructuring. The fourth section interprets the various texts and identifies the paradigms of resistance in them. The valedictory address dwells upon the process of recovery and renovation of the traditional system and the significance of collective amelioration.
