The Department of English, Kirori Mal College, is delighted to announce the first Oceanvale Workshop for undergraduate and postgraduate students of the University of Delhi. The Oceanvale programme has been instituted in the memory of Ravi Singh, a former student of the Department of English at Kirori Mal College. Ravi intended to devote himself to the art and craft of writing but his early demise meant that Oceanvale, published in 1995, remains his first and last published novel. The bi-annual Oceanvale programme aims to introduce students with exceptional scholarly potential to advanced research, analytical, and writing skills by having them work intensively and closely with scholars and authors of eminence in the field.
The workshop for Autumn 2018 will be conducted under the expert guidance of Professor Sukanta Chaudhuri, Professor Emeritus at Jadavpur University, Kolkata. Professor Chaudhuri’s work has spanned from studies of the Renaissance to translation studies and, more recently, textual studies, and digital humanities. The workshop, in consonance with Professor Chaudhuri’s work on textual studies and digital humanities, will centre on “The Idea of the Text”.

Jacob of the Department of English, Ramjas College, University of Delhi, will also lend their substantial academic credentials and insight to the programme.
