The department of Literature studies focus on the research and study of literature. It is one of our foremost aims to provide students with a rich, systematic, and up to date understanding of the various fields of Malayalam language and literature and to offer a comprehensive curriculum reflecting the status of Literary studies. We consider research and teaching to be interdependent and mutually enhancing academic practices. Our classrooms are where new scholarly perspectives or assumptions are tried and tested. Lectures, Seminars and workshops are not simply didactic, but designed to engage fundamental theoretical questions and to tackle a range of methodological issues.
