My Victorian Novel: an edited collection

 My Victorian Novel

Isobel Armstrong has lamented that the way we teach the Victorian novel, with enthusiasm and delight, is so different from the way we criticize it. I wonder if this is also partially true about the way we really read and experience Victorian novels, if there is a Wemmick-like division between the absorbed and happy reader, cozy and contented in the Castle, and the buttoned-up professor at the lectern or the laptop. Rereading Victorian fiction over time, for our classes or our scholarship, must at some level involve a relaxation of feeling, the evocation of memories, psychic immersion, and moral engagement––alongside critical distance, objectivity, or suspicion.

The Future of Humanities in the 21st Century

Thursday, March 15, 2018

Major civilizations of the world – Indian and Greek – based their models of education on inter-relatedness of various disciplines. However, with the focus on specialization and technology, liberal arts suffered at the expense of science and technology. But recently the discipline of Liberal arts and Human sciences has attained an unprecedented popularity in various Universities all over the world. The present world of the 21st century is strongly underpinned by rapid developments in the field of science and technology and accompanied by the ever-spreading roots of a global economy. The question then arises as to what role liberal education can play in the world mired in technological innovations spawned by globalization.
