(Indian Writing in English) has been extended until 25 February 2007.

Details:

We are publishing a book on Indian Literature (Indian Writing in English)
dedicated to our teacher and head Dr B S Valke by the end of December.

Indian Writing in English has become a renowned phenomenon by now; however,
there is a dearth of high quality critical material on it. Therefore we
invite papers of high literary standards by scholars who would especially
like to present Poststructuralist / Postmodernist perspective on Indian
Writing in English.
