What, Why and How of Studying Literature
As a part of student-reflection on learning, they are asked to add a page on their Digital Portfolio about:
- What is Literature?
- Why study Literature?
- How does it make any difference?
To help students in this process of reflective learning, some useful blogs, vidoes, web-articles are shared here. As it is necessary to give line of thought or some starting points, so that students can realise what is expected, here are some resources:
- What Literature is for?
- What Books Do for the Human Soul: The Four Psychological Functions of Great Literature“Writers open our hearts and minds, and give us maps to our own selves.” (MARIA POPOVA)
- Is BA English in India just timepass? (Ketan Krishna)
- IIT dropout finds B.A. English syllabus equally uninteresting (Pagal Patrakar)
