National Conference on English Literature, Language and Media

Saturday, May 21, 2016 Posted by Kumar Wani No comments
Dear colleagues, We are happy to invite you to the Two Days National Conference on English Literature, Language and Media on 24-25 June 2016 (Friday & Saturday) being organized by the Department of English, Yogeshwari Mahavidyalaya, Ambajogai MS.
Concept Note
There is a close relation between literature and our everyday language but at the same time it is influenced by our everyday language and the language of literature. Media has enriched the language by giving new terms and phrases to the language and literature too. It has changed the way narrative techniques have been used in literature all along and the best example is the Nobel Prize winner Svetlana Alexievich’s ‘Polyphonic Writing’ which is simply a collage of interviews and it paved the new way of writing fiction. Use of social media has changed the language we use in our writing. What will be the effect of using contractions, acronyms, use of alphanumerical words, emojis, emoticons in written language give us the platform for discussions in this conference. English language is very flexible and inclusive and has accepted many words and phrases from other languages and cultures. Media is considered as the fourth pillar of democracy and it has responsibility to portray or depict the things sincerely following ethics and values.

The Influence of Shakespeare on everyday English

Friday, July 24, 2015 Posted by Kumar Wani No comments
Why do we have a lesson on a writer who died hundreds of years ago? Don’t worry. The poet and playwright William Shakespeare has had a big influence on the English language. Many of the words and expressions that he invented are still in use today, and we often don’t realize it. In this lesson, Gill from engVid will introduce you to some of the most common expressions which first appeared in print hundreds of years ago and are still used today. So come on. Watch the lesson!
