Vol. 8       2019       Issue 1



In recent years, the English curriculum in colleges and universities has gone through several changes and modifications, thanks to the introduction of ‘Choice Based Credit System’ (CBCS). Keeping in mind the new generation-students’ need to come out of a long-sustained ‘colonial hangover’ and the supremacy of British literature all over the syllabi , Core Courses in ‘Indian Classical literature’, ‘European Classical Literature’, ‘Popular Literature’, ‘American Literature’, ‘Indian Writing in English’, ‘Women’s Writing’, ‘Partition Literature’ have been incorporated. The present issue of Middle Flight seeks to address the issues/topics/texts included in the new system, with the hope of becoming useful to the faculties and learners in the departments of English all over the nation.

A special section of the present volume is going to be dedicated to the memory of Girish Karnad (1938-2019), the iconic figure of Modern Indian Theatre. Papers on the plays of Karnad as well as on any other Indian English playwright of the Pre-independence, Post-independence and contemporary times will comprise this special section. Because of its more vital connection with the living theatre than Indian English drama has and also because of its active engagement with the Indian myths and cultural heritage, plays written in regional languages have made great strides forward. Papers on the regional plays in translation into English are also welcome for this section.
