On 7 May, 2014, the Department of English, Loreto College organized a programme to mark the launch of the book Aspects of Modernity: American Women’s Poetry edited by Sukanya Dasgupta and published by Jadavpur University Press. The book was released by Dr. Jael Silliman, former faculty member of the Women’s Studies department, University of Iowa, who was the Chief Guest at the event.
This book brings together the proceedings of an international conference organized by the Department of English in December 2012. It features a collection of seventeen contemporary essays about women poets with a wide variety of concerns, writing in America over a period of two centuries. Foregrounding changing socio-cultural issues, the essays illuminate a spectrum of aspects of modern life and its ideological precedents in northern America.
