Dear Friends:

You will be happy to know that we have brought out the Summer 2017  number of the Journal. It is a retrospective issue containing select articles from some of the previous issues, from 1991 to 2015. This issue commemorates the 25th year of the publication of the Journal. The articles included here are arranged chronologically according to their years of publication. This chronology, which does not seem to have any logical basis, however tries to map theoretical and conceptual reflections in literary and cultural studies during this period. Most of the articles in this issue pertain to debates in literature departments all over the world.  We hope you will like this issue.  However, we will not be able to send you hard copies. If you are a member of FCT and want to possess a hard copy, please send to FCT a sum of rupees 400/ (Rupees four hundred only) either through direct bank transfer or a multi-city cheque in the name of Forum on Contemporary Theory.  We will be happy to mail you a soft copy if you mail us your email ID.
