About Events

The Indian Vernacular Languages Literatures and Histories organized by Department of English, University of Delhi which will be held from September 7 2015 from September 9 2015. In our postcolonial times, the term, “vernacular” is often used in oppositional terms to resist dominance of such cosmopolitan languages as (in pre-modern times) Sanskrit and Persian,and (now) English, the Indian vernaculars can be seen as rooted in everyday lives of peoplein diverse regions of India. Indian Vernaculars form the very basis of their daily lives ranging
from all kinds of expressive modes, histories, and the indigenous modernitites. Vernaculars languages, literatures and histories of India are emblematic of Indian cultural diversity and linguistic plurality. Vernacular literatures have cast influence on local identities, their histories, stories and myths. With these broad ideas in mind, the three-day conference attempts to explore the world of Indian vernaculars emphasising the three major aspects of India: linguistic diversity
of language spoken/written (jargon, dialects, accents, slangs), literatures written in regional languages of India and histories written in vernaculars. The conferences propose to engage scholars from diverse academic background to explore various dimensions of Indian Vernaculars.
