About the Department
The English Department at Dr B.R. Ambedkar College is dedicated to preparing students to become insightful
readers, thinkers, writers and life-long learners with an awareness of historical, cultural, and philosophical issues.
Their education in literature, writing, criticism, and language enables students to write effectively, think critically,
read widely, weigh values, and communicate ideas. The teachers are readily available to students and committed to helping
each student achieve his or her educational, personal and professional goals. In our work as teachers, and scholars, we
often explore how literature, more than any other discipline, is based in a play of imagination that animates abundant
possibilities for alternate social arrangements: atypical societies, different ways of living, utopian intuitions about
more equitable, more liberated, and more just forms of social organization.
