Current and Recent Research Students
Mr Avishek Parui
I began my PhD in the University of Durham on October 2010. I am currently researching on Cinema and its influences on Modernism, more specifically, on the works of Virginia Woolf, James Joyce and T.S.Eliot. My first and second supervisors are Professor Patricia Waugh and Dr. John Nash respectively. I seek to study the negotiations the major early 20th-Century English Modernists performed with phenomenology and the contemporary cognitive sciences of their day, before arriving at the cinematic correlates in their narratives and textual textures. I did my M.A in English from the University of Calcutta, India, in 2007, and have had over two years of teaching experience in India at the undergraduate level in a college affiliated to Calcutta University.
I am also a published poet and creative writing trainer certified and trained by the British Council, India. I am member of the Poetry Society in Durham and have read my poems in Purple Radio. My Email ID is email@example.com.
I am the Indian Secretary of the Katherine Mansfield Society (www.katherinemansfieldsociety.org/avishek-parui/), a member of the British Association of Modernist Studies (BAMS) and one of the organisers of the Inventions of the Text Series Seminars in the English Department (http://inventionsofthetext.blogspot.com/) for the year 2011/12.
