Course Objectives/Course Description

 

The Additional English course is offered as a second language course and seeks to introduce the students to the nuances of English literature in its varied forms and genres. The students who choose Additional English are generally proficient in the English language. Hence, instead of focusing on introducing them to language, challenging texts in terms of ideas, form, and technique are chosen. Additional English as a course is designed for students in place of a regional language. Non-Resident Indians (NRIs), foreign nationals and students who have not taken Hindi, Kannada, Tamil or French at the Plus 2 or Class XII levels are eligible to choose Additional English. The course is taught for students from different streams, namely, BA, BSc, BCom, and BBA in the first year and for BA, BSc and BCom (Regular) in the second year.

The first year syllabus is an attempt by the Department of English, Christ University to recognize and bring together the polyphonic Indian and Indian sub-continental voices in English in English translation for the Additional English students of the first year. This effort aims to familiarize the students with regional literatures in translation, Indian Writing in English (IWE) and literatures from Pakistan, Nepal and Srilanka, thereby, enabling the students to learn more about Indian culture and ethos through writings from different regions of the country. We have tried to represent in some way or the other the corners of India and the Indian sub-continent in this microcosmic world of short stories, poems and essays

 

There is a prescribed text bookfor the first year students, compiled by the Department of English, Christ University and intended for private circulation.

The first semester has a variety of writing from India, Pakistan and Nepal. The various essays, short stories and poems deal with various socio-economic, cultural and political issues that are relevant to modern day India and the Indian sub-continent and will enable students to comprehend issues of identity-politics, caste, religion, class, and gender. All of the selections either in the manner of their writing, the themes they deal with or the ideologies that govern them are contemporary in relevance and sensibility, whether written by contemporary writers or earlier writers. An important addition to this syllabus is the preponderance of North-Eastern writing which was hitherto not well represented. Excerpts from interviews, autobiographical writings, sports and city narratives are added to this section to introduce students to the varied genres of literature.

The objectives of this course are

to expose students to the rich literary and cultural diversity of  Indian literatures

to sensitise students on the social, political, historical and cultural ethos that has shaped the nation- INDIA

to enable to grasp and appreciate the variety and abundance of Indian writing, of which this compilation is just a passing glance

to learn and appreciate India through association of ideas in the texts and the external contexts (BhashaUtsav will be an intrinsic help in this endeavour)

Introduction:

Rationale and Orientation

The first semester has a variety of writing from India, Pakistan and Nepal. The various essays, short stories and poems deal with various socio-economic, cultural and political issues that are relevant to modern day India and the Indian sub-continent and will enable students to comprehend issues of identity-politics, caste, religion, class, and gender. All of the selections either in the manner of their writing, the themes they deal with or the ideologies that govern them are contemporary in relevance and sensibility, whether written by contemporary writers or earlier writers. An important addition to this syllabus is the preponderance of North-Eastern writing which was hitherto not well represented. Excerpts from interviews, autobiographical writings, sports and city narratives are added to this section to introduce students to the varied genres of literature.

Pedagogy

The teachers are expected to discuss with and encourage the students to engage with definitions of Indian literature – in English and translations and the distinctions made thereby. One could compare Indian literature to English Literature, which they might be familiar with through their encounters in CBSE, ICSE, IB and other streams, and point out the similarities and differences in writing styles, themes, ideas, treatment of issues and in one’s apprehension of life and experiences. A Teacher’s handbook is compiled keeping in mind the common ideas and skills that students need to develop and enabling teachers to uniformly discuss these issues and concerns in their respective classes.

Course Objectives

The objectives of this course are

·         to expose students to the rich literary and cultural diversity of  Indian literatures

·         to sensitise students on the social, political, historical and cultural ethos that has shaped the nation- INDIA

·         to enable to grasp and appreciate the variety and abundance of Indian writing, of which this compilation is just a passing glance

·         to learn and appreciate India through association of ideas in the texts and the external contexts (BhashaUtsav will be an intrinsic help in this endeavour)

This course primarily deals with the basic concepts and theories of Micro Economics and is divided into 7 units. The first unit is titled Introduction to Economics and will introduce the fundamental concepts, terms and terminologies used in microeconomic analysis. Unit 2 (Theory of Demand and Supply) discusses the most important analytical tools of economics-demand, supply and equilibrium, along with different types and degrees of elasticity and their measurements. Unit 3 (Theory of Costs, Production and Revenue) combines the traditional economic theories pertaining to Production, Costs and Revenue. Unit 4 (Consumer and Producer Behavior) deals with the various theories of Consumer and Producer behavior and the analytical tools used by both economic entities in the determination of utility and profit. Unit 5 (Behavior of the Firm) extensively deals with the different kinds of markets and how price and output is determined in different market models.

Finally, Unit 7 (Macro Economic Variables and Policies) introduces the basic macroeconomic concepts and variables and their measurement, and the contemporary debates of Macroeconomics.

 

The course is specifically designed for students with no formal background or a little acquaintance with Economics-with a major thrust on Micro Economics. A good grasp of Micro Economics is vital for economic decision making, for designing and understanding public policy from a legal perspective, and more generally for appreciating how a modern economy functions. The main objective of the course is to give the students with a clear understanding of the basic concepts, tools of analysis and terminologies used in Economics, which will facilitate their understanding of various legal phenomena and their economic implications.
