Welcome to The Research Acceleration Centre
Technologies of Literary Pedagogy
1) About the Cluster

This research cluster comprises enquiries and explorations into the pedagogy and praxis of English literary studies in India. The thrust area is literary pedagogy  - textual canons, critical traditions, and theoretical frameworks. The motivation for this research stems from the crisis of not just English studies but the humanities in general due to the dominance of STEM education. In the Indian context, this crisis has a different trajectory as English has a strong presence in tertiary education (at least in terms of enrolment), due mainly to the market demand for English. Literary studies, however, is plagued by issues of cultural relevance and relatability: debates on why it is taught, what is taught, and how it is to be taught are increasingly challenging in today’s technologized learning environment
