  Feminism in Literature - Now vs Then?
Posted by: Literature_Admin - 02-09-2019, 07:03 PM - Forum: Feminist, Lesbian & Gay - the literary theories - Replies (1)

Hey, guys! 
We believe you all are having good hours here. Let's make things happen in the section of gender theories as well. What's Feminism? How was it before? How is it now? How fair do you think Feminism has been in use in the works of literature of the past and of the day we live? Let's talk about the Feminism theory in literature.

  NET English Syllabus Changed!
Posted by: Literature_Admin - 02-01-2019, 10:21 AM - Forum: Discussion forum on English Literature NET Exam - Replies (11)

Dear members and NET aspirants, the syllabus has changed! The UGC has changed the syllabus for NET Examination, English and many other subjects. Did you get the updated syllabus yet? If not, the new syllabus has been added here. Moreover, we need to discuss the syllabus because it is supposed that the upcoming NET examinations will be conducted on the basis of the latest syllabus. 

How much has changed? 
The authorities have decided to keep the syllabus almost the same but a NOTE has been added that now the aspirants will be tested on all fronts. The note reads: 
 
"NOTE: The first four units must also be tested through comprehension passages to assess critical reading, critical thinking and writing skills. These four units will cover all literatures in English."

So, what is 'all literatures'? What is meant by 'writing skills'? 

We should begin a new discussion and should try to reach a standard conclusion that we all can agree.

  Contemporary Indian Writers - What are you reading right now?
Posted by: RohanGupta - 01-28-2019, 11:23 PM - Forum: Indian English Literature - Replies (12)

Dear members and enthusiasts of literature, I hope you all must be good and active readers as well. So, let's discuss the contemporary literature now. What are you reading right now? Which contemporary authors have you read? What does the contemporary Indian English literature mean to you? You can share, if you want, why do you love particular author(s) and what more would you expect? 

We can also exchange our ideas and reading experiences. Though it's difficult to assume that the contemporary and popular literature in India (written in English or translated) is read by many other than those who are either supposed to read it or are youths, still, I am taking this opportunity to invite the opinions and to kickstart the discussion.
