National Seminar on Contemporary Indian Women Novelists in English

Department of English
University of Hyderabad

A Two-Day
National Seminar on
Contemporary Indian Women Novelists in English
25-26 March 2009

Women writers have been flourishing in the genre of fiction right from late 18th century with Toru Dutt, Krupabai Satthianadhan and Shevantibai M. Nikambe to the present novelists such as Shashi Deshpande, Manju Kapur, Jaisree Misra and Kiran Desai to mention only a few. Some of these novelists are becoming bestsellers all over the world. There has been a lot of research on the women writers either on the independent authors or on the group of authors or on the theoretical framework.

However, this seminar will try to explore all the canonized and non-canonized texts starting from 2000 onwards as the publication cut off date and authors of the contemporary women novelists and makes an attempt to bring them for a discussion and also let the literary world know about the novelists who may have been budding or otherwise.

The broad themes could be:

Now that Chiru has entered into politics my vote will be to him and try to convince people that to vote to his party.

I would like to congratulate Dr. Chiranjeevi for launching his party entitled "Praja Rajyam" on 26th August 2008 on the day when Lord Hanuman is worshipped. Since Chiru is the devotee of Anjaneya, the blessings of his Lord will always be there. As soon as I finished my class I rushed home to watch the launch of the Party name and the flag of his party. After switching on the TV I was overwhelmed by seeing the crowd. Although the politicians give the less number than what it was on that day. One could say boldly that it was the best of any political party's gathering.
