Guest Lectures
In addition to visits from Indian writers who read from and discuss their work, SCILET also sponsors lectures by scholars and critics who have studied the work of these writers and other related new literatures in English. These lecturers have come not only from India but from a variety of overseas countries, demonstrating the increased interest in this literature in many parts of the world. Audiences for these lectures are similar to those who attend creative writers’ programmes, and frequently add their comments, questions and discussion after the lecture has been given. Principal Guest Lecturers, their positions, titles of the lectures and the dates of their visits are given below.
