Department of English

The history of the department of English dates back to 1926 - the inception of the college. It is with immense pride that we recall the presence in the departmental faculty, of luminaries like the legendary teacher of English Prof. Taraknath Sen, the renowned poet Prof. Bishnu Dey, the lexicographer Prof. Gouri Ghosh, the eminent teacher Prof. Kalidas Bose, among others. This heritage is what we, the present generation of teachers in the department, are trying to live upto and further enrich.

Exposing students to the aesthetics of English literature and the English language was what the department primarily intended. This tradition has been carried on as teachers try to instill in students the skills required for a proper appreciation of literature. This emphasis on developing a critical insight is carried out with a simultaneous honing of their language skills. We help to bring out the latent creative abilities of the students through encouragement and guidance. We believe in fostering literary sensibilities and the creative imagination and feel that this is very important in cultivating a holistic approach to life.

This sense of a unified whole is also evident in the composition and nature of our department. Although students from the Muslim community form the greater percentage, students from other communities find no problems in amalgamating comfortably with the others. It is heartening to see how the seeds of communal harmony are being unobtrusively sown as the department unitedly goes about its varied academic and related pursuits.
