Theory and Praxis: Curriculum, Culture and English Studies

Prafulla C. Kar (Editor) Kailash C. Baral (Editor) Sura P. Rath (Editor)
Synopsis This volume of selected papers from the Journal of Contemporary Thought of the Forum on Contemporary Theory of the Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda commemorates the tenth anniversary of the publication of the Journal (1991-2000). The papers are organized around the topic of the discipline of English studies: its history, institutional context, transformation, and pedagogical and curricular imperatives. As the discipline is situated within a complex context of intersections of several attitudes and ideologies involving the intricate processes of knowledge-formation in both colonial and postcolonial settings, the essays included in the volume both address specific questions about English studies and broad questions about the social and political ideologies determining the institution of the discipline and its ongoing debate regarding its curricular and pedagogical imperatives. The volume will provide a useful resource to both literary scholars and scholars from the sister disciplines in the humanities and social sciences.
