I registered for PhD and also joined the English department as UGC Junior Research Fellow in August, 2011. I am studying the postfeminist nuances in Indian chick lit and attempting to write a thesis on the same. Previously I attended Calcutta University: M.A. (2009) and B.A. (2007). Popular culture, Feminism and Postcolonialism are my areas of interest.
