The worth of work done in a university is weighed in writing. Students write reports, assignments, papers and dissertations; faculty and researchers put out their work in journals and books. What is written is also written about. What is written forms the network and the net worth of knowledge made systematic and accessible. Writing contrarily demands attentive isolation and a steadfast reciprocal connection to the community. Writing in the university contrarily asserts and blurs distinctions between academic and creative writing, writing for experts and writing made available to non-experts. The discipline of writing is as notorious for its difficulty as its fame in the unmatched pleasure of slowly unfolding, perfectly crafted sentences. For its annual conference, the department of English at Shiv Nadar University invites engagement with the discipline of writing as it shapes academic disciplines, practice of scholarship, creative writing and writing in public discourses.

Prof. Richard E. Miller of Rutgers University will deliver the keynote address. Prof. Miller has written extensively about the evolving shape of writing in higher education in the United States.

Dr. Denise Comer, Director of First Year Writing at The Thompson Writing Program, Duke University will lead the conversation on academic writing pedagogies.

Papers can be about but are not restricted to the following:

• Academic Writing Pedagogy

- challenges in administering writing centers, formulating courses and syllabi, teacher training, using technology, remedial writing courses, processes of writing, revision and review, effective feedback and assessment, connecting reading and writing

• Teaching Creative Writing

- challenges in teaching creative writing, teaching voice, the relationship between academic and creative writing, organizing syllabi, assessing performance, aspiration, practice and craft, writers on writing

• Using Writing to Teach

- From Archaeology to Zoology, how do disciplines other than academic writing teach writing? Making writing an effective tool in teaching undergraduates, assignments that elicit critical engagement, using creative writing assignments and projects as teaching tools

• Who do We Write For?

-cultures and philosophies of writing, language of expertise, writing for the public, publishing written work, the changing venues of publishing writing, publishable writing and the hand of editors, the brave new world of writing and publishing online

• Writing in the World

-how does a writer write in the world? Writers and public discourses, responding to crisis in writing, putting the world in words

Conference coordinators:

Dr. Tulika Chandra, Dr. Anannya Dasgupta, Dr. Akhil Katyal, and Prof. Sambudha Sen

For queries, conference convener: Dr. Anannya Dasgupta ad509@snu.edu.in

In the context of digitizing archived photographs, the question arises whether the photos may lose their meaning or interpretation, said Dr. Vinayak Dasgupta, Assistant Professor at Shiv Nadar University. He was speaking on 'Spectres of Early Forms: As Essay on the Limits of Digitization' during the English Faculty Lecture Series organized by the Department of English. "On one hand, photographs have a very direct connection in the real world and can refer to a combination of time and space, at the same time, they also have a capacity to travel across time and space," He said. There arises complexity of meaning and interpretation too. We need to see, through act of preservation (digitization) what is it that we are actually trying to preserve, he said

Department of International Relations and Governance Studies in association with Centre for Public Affairs and Critical Theory at Shiv Nadar University organized a talk on 'Aiming Low Hitting Lower? The Subregional Turn in India's Foreign Policy' by Dr. Nimmi Kurian of Centre for Policy Research, New Delhi as part of its Asian Dialogue Series. Delhi's 'new' reading of borders is admittedly feel-good narrative of rethinking borders as bridges and speaks a comfortable cosmopolitan language. But behind this celebratory rhetoric, the sub-regional moment in Indian IR has been a bitter-sweet one - caught between colliding dualism that have resulted in a conflicted and confused narrative. Dr. Kurian's talk explored the prospects of this subterranean sub-regionalism(s), a form of integration that mainstream research and policy has so far chosen to ignore
