About Department

Department of English and Modern European Languages is one of the six founding Departments of DeenDayalUpadhyaya Gorakhpur University, Gorakhpur with which the University started its functioning on August 28, 1957. Under the leadership of Prof. S. P. Mishra as Head, the Department embarked on its voyage with Dr R. N. Verma, Mr Thakur Guru Prasad Srivastava and Dr R. S. Verma as the faculty members. The Department attracted greater attention during its infancy itself when three faculty members, namely Dr R. S. Verma, Professor Pratap Singh and Professor Krishna Gopal Srivastava were selected by the British Council to study abroad.

The Department aims to create and provide an academically vibrant ambience to its students. Classroom lectures are well supplemented by various co-curricular activities such as film shows and workshops. Under the aegis of co-curricular wing “English Study Circle” for the Postgraduate students of the Department, competitions in creative writing, debate, essay writing, literary quiz, extempore, group discussion, elocution and recitations are organized. The Ph.D. scholars of the department are encouraged to write research papers related to their topics and to present them before the teachers and the students in form of mini seminars. More than forty students are registered as the Ph.D. scholars at present. The Department has organised a two day National Seminar on the topic ‘Literature across Mediums’ on February 15-16, 2019. On September11, 2019 the Department organised a “Teachers & Fresher Students’ Meet” in which students gave their wonderful performances and experiences were shared by seniors.

In the last few years, the Department has successfully fashioned its curricula and teaching methodology in accordance with the contemporary standards in higher education. From this session, the Department has started running its Postgraduate Course on the CBCS pattern. Apart from the Core Courses, many new Elective Courses such as ‘Popular Literature in English’, ‘Literature and Environment’ and ‘Women’s Writings in English’ are also now offered by the Department. Opening up of the Language Laboratory and equipping a classroom with smart technology have proved to be highly beneficial to the teachers as well as the students. The Department focuses on British Literature, American Literature, Indian English Literature, Afro- American Literature, Postcolonial Studies, South Asian Literature, Modern Indian Literature in Translation, Literary Theory and Linguistics. The Department is planning to restart its diploma courses in Russian, French, German, Spanish and Communicative English. The Department is also determined to initiate new programmes in Cultural Studies, Translation Studies, Film Studies and Theatre Studies. The Department, thus, eagerly strives to explore, as Milton says, ‘fresh woods, and pastures new’.
