Prakash JoshiPrakash Joshi

Born, brought up and educated in India, Dr. Prakash Joshi has just joined the Department of Comparative Literature as Fulbright Visiting Professor/Scholar for a semester. He will teach Girish Karnad’s (Modern Indian) Drama at the Department during Fall Semester 2012. Before moving to Banasthali University (India) in his present position, he taught a long time at a Postgraduate college of quintessential Semi-Urban India.

Dr. Joshi did his MA in English with a ‘specialization’ in Linguistics, and then moved on to do his doctorate in American Drama- on Tennessee Williams. Ever since, drama of all eras and climes has been of interest to him. In his teaching career spanning over two decades, Dr. Joshi has taught Classical Greek Drama (Sophocles), Elizabethan Drama (Shakespeare and Ben Jonson), Neo Classical Drama (John Dryden), Modern Drama (Ibsen), Absurd Drama (Samuel Beckett), Twentieth Century American Drama (Tennessee Williams) and Modern Indian Drama (Girish Karnad). Apart from Drama, Dr. Joshi has also taught English (British) fiction and poetry. As of now, he is more into the teaching of Literary Theory, a part of Classical Indian Aesthetics, and Stylistics at postgraduate level.

The academic publications of Dr. Joshi are not big in number, and all of them are in the form of research papers/articles. These publications of Dr. Joshi are on Girish Karnad, Tennessee Williams, Shakespeare, and some aspects of Linguistics and Stylistics. He is working on a book that should be coming out early 2013. He has been supervising doctoral research in diverse areas.
