This issue of JUSAS Online , the second, presents a prismatic collection of essays and reviews by student-members of the Jadavpur University Society for American Studies.
At its inception, the JUSAS had, as its prime objective, the bringing-together, in a happy co-existence, of research-endeavours on multiple themes in multiple disciplines by research-fellows and college and university teachers. But as the 20th century birthed the 21st , it became apparent that students now were as research-minded and as interested as their seniors in envisaging a potent fusion of the arts and exploring intraliterary as well as cross-cultural, cross-medial and intertextual relationships, thrust areas of JUSAS. Our seminars and workshops, therefore, invited papers and inputs from these young researchers. Relying to a great extent on students for its smooth functioning, our online arm, too, is a step in this direction. The diversity and vivacity of subjects broached in this issue- STUDENTSPEAK- is testimony to the success of our experiment.
