Literature and Culture :
The AGDC department of English held an Inter-Collegiate Student's Seminar on "Literature and Culture : An Overview" on 23 January 2005. It was for the very first time that such a literary event was organized by any college in the city. The hypothesis was that "Literatures" have acquired their very own cultural identity. They tend to reflect their ideology, emotions and tendencies of their culture. The aim of this seminar was to examine and appraise this phenomenon as also other allied issues. Ms M Manglik was the chief guest. Prof B.N. Singh, Head, Department of English & Modern European Languages, University of Lucknow, delivered the key note address. Students from the University, CIEFL, Post Graduate institutions and other degree colleges also participated and presented their papers. Earlier, Ms. U. Srivastava, Principal of Avadh Girls' Degree College welcomed all the delegates. Ms M Yog of the English department gave the inaugural address. The vote of thanks was proposed by Dr. R Krishna and Dr. S.S. Katiyar.
