Debanjana Nayek

Assistant Professor

The scholarly interest of Debanjana Nayek lies in the area of Comics and Graphic Novels. In her ongoing doctoral thesis she is delving into the “infinite canvas” (Scott McCloud) of the cyberspace to research on the diverse formats of digital graphic narratives, with an emphasis on the Webcomics. Through her work she is also investigating issues of representation, identity and the changing culture of graphic narration in the digital sphere.

Her related domains of specialization are in Digital Humanities, theories of visual culture and the New Media studies. In her M.Phil dissertation she has researched on the emerging sequential art forms of India, like webcomics, “grassroot” and war comics, where she argues that these visual narratives create a new kind of subculture in the genre of Indian graphic storytelling.

In her teaching career in a college under Calcutta University she has taught Shakespeare’s plays, Romantic, Victorian and Twentieth century poetry as well as Indian Writing in English.
