The Department of English enhances the interpretative and expressive skills of students in an intellectual environment that is stimulating and nurturing. It equips students with both a rigorous knowledge of the subject as well as a critical and analytical ability. It provides an engagement with issues as varied as identity formation, race relations, gender stereotypes and the politics of language. The emphasis is on an inter-disciplinary approach. The courses have been methodically designed to explore world literatures, Indian literature and literatures in translation.

Since 2001, the Department has an ongoing Fulbright Faculty exchange programme with Kenyon College, USA. Through this exchange students at LSR interact with a visiting Faculty member from Kenyon College. Similarly members of the Department visit and teach at Kenyon College. The LSR Department of English also has a close relationship with La Trobe University, Australia and the two institutions have jointly hosted several seminars. The Department of English is privileged to have an extremely dynamic faculty whose expertise in critical theory has been widely acknowledged and whose creative writing has been extensively published.
