The thrust area of this programme - Literary and Cultural Interface between Bengal and Britain in the 19th and 20th centuries - will enable the Department of English to look at the complex processes of nation-building and the formation of national consciousness, while conducting in-depth research on the social and cultural life of Bengal.
