Appropriation of literary texts as tools of cultural study will help students to challenge centuries of social tradition and scientific belief which promote such and other types of differentiations. Cross Fertilization with allied Arts Students of English Honours should also be able to articulate the relations among culture, history, and texts—for example, ideological and political aspects of representation, economic processes of textual production, dissemination and reception, and cross-fertilization with other arts: architecture, sculpture, music, film, painting, dance, and theatre.
