Department of English

The English department of Shillong College was started in 1956, obviously the same year the College took its birth. Late Shri Rajendra Lal Choudhury, a veteran advocate and an educationist of the town, and Shri Subhash Chatterjee of Lady Keane College were the first teachers of English in the College. They also played a pioneering role in the establishment of the College as well. A galaxy of celebrated teachers of English then came forward to make the foundation rock-solid, and this included Prof. G. G. Swell, Prof. Kapila Chatterjee,Prof. S. B. Bhattacharjee, Shri C. P. Sinha and many others. Prof. B.N. Nanda, M.A., LL.B, joined the college as the first full time lecturer in 1958, later to be followed by Shri Natarajan, Shri Sambhu Banerjee and Shri B. K. Gupta Bhaya. With the expansion in academic activities and the opening of Science Section, more teachers joined the department and Smt. Dipali Chakraborty (retired), Shri Jagadish Purkayastha (a Shakespearean scholar, now retired) and Dr. Subir Sen Gupta (who did Ph. D. on ‘Romanticism in Unromantic Shaw’, now retired) went on to illuminate the department.Smt. Mamata Bordoloi (retired) joined the department in 1967 and later Shri Nirmal Kr. Sarkar in 1969 (retired as Vice Principal)
