Invitation to Third JGU Literary Conference

Literature has been talked of as mirroring the society. In that sense, the social, political and cultural aspects of society have found expression in it. Somewhere down the line, the individual psyche too became the prime focus in literature.

The high tide of globalization has further impacted the outlook and methodology of literature.

It is, therefore, meaningful to discuss the emergence of latest trends in literature produced in English, whether in India or abroad. Read more
