National Conference on Interweaving Texts and Contexts – Pedagogical Strategies

Organised by Dept of Studies and Research in English 
Tumkur University, Tumkur Karntaka
30 April 2012
About The Conference
It is evident that a work of art earlier was examined in vacuum. But the work of art has now evolved to attain a new nomenclature “Text”. Thanks to the various insights contributed by theorists across the world, the idea of Text in the recent developments in the theory of textuality from Barthes to Belsey has posed challenges to the way literary and non-literary texts are studied. In the light of this debate, the Conference proposes to examine the possibility of a preeminent context around a text or a context that assumes its shape circumstantially.

Objectives of the Conference
  • To explore new critical idioms for the evaluation and reading of literary and non-literary texts
  • To develop various perspectives for reading literatures
