A two-day seminar on `Interdisciplinarity` was organised by the Department on 20 and 21 April,2015. Dr.ChandreyiNeogy, a member of the faculty, Dept.of English Jadavpur University, delivered the key note address. While the idea of interdisciplinarity was nothing new with the Renaissance polyglots, the concept has assumed a new dimension in the postmodern era where the border between disciplines has been completely obliterated. While this has opened up a huge space for research and scholarly studies, the departments of English are the biggest beneficiaries because literature is a good reference point for such inroads into other territories.
The seminar explored these new areas of scholarly research. 24 students from various colleges and universities participated in this seminar which also saw parallel sessions. Besides, 12 students from the home department read papers in this seminar.
