About the Magazine

Anukarsh is a peer-reviewed literary magazine published by the Department of Language and Literature, Alliance University. The magazine is intended to function as a space that synergizes the unique artistic and creative vigour ingrained in Indian literature. As one among the very few multilingual literary magazines in the country, Anukarsh works to explore the multitudinous ways in which our diverse languages and cultures have worked to form a rich and composite literary oeuvre. It shall promote a comparative approach towards the study of Indian languages, cultures, and literatures. The magazine will work to celebrate the plurality and diversity of Indian cultures, traditions, and literatures, while promoting a syncretic understanding of the same.

About the Anukarsh Magazine

Call for Papers for Vol. II, Issue 1

As a quarterly, multilingual and interdisciplinary enterprise, we believe that Anukarsh can truly function as an interface that brings together scholars, writers, and literati from diverse linguistic and cultural backgrounds. The first issue of Anukarsh, with a special focus on Hindi language, literature, and culture, was successfully released in September this year on the occasion of Hindi Diwas.

The Vol II. i is planned to be released in December, primarily in three languages - Hindi, English and Kannada - though we welcome and encourage submissions in other Indian languages as well.

This issue will focus on the broad theme of "Artistic, Literary, Cultural and Historical Heritage of South India". We hope that this issue will help us better understand the linguistic, cultural, and socio-political landscape of South India.

We cordially invite all our esteemed writers, scholars, and researchers to send in your valuable contributions for this issue. Your article should reach us on or before 20/12/2021 on the following email address: anukarsh@alliance.edu.in.
