The Department of English, Kirori Mal College, is delighted to host the 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.
