Department of English
The English language is a work in progress. Have fun with it.
Established in 1969, the story of the Dept of English of Utkal University, the oldest University postgraduate department of English in Odisha, is one of continuous expansion and renewal. It has the distinction of being founded by a woman who was not only accomplished in the lore of English literature and language with her A.M degree from the University of Minnesota, USA but was also an early pioneer in the field of women?s higher education in Odisha. Pravat Nalini Das gave academic leadership to the English Department at Utkal since its beginning in 1969 till her retirement in 1987.ab
