Dr Tanya Mander has been associated with the RGNUL since 2007. She has been associated with teaching English Literature and Language to law students for over 15 years.  Her research reflects the aim to unravel, and explore the intersections of literature with various critical literary theories; and draw multiple parallel connections between art and life (society). Her research interests look at contemporary paradigms of literary studies that make space for significant reflection of both ‘shape’ and ‘picture’ of life. Dr. Mander’s primary focus has been to build the idea of research as a permeable membrane between theory and practice, explore boundaries and underscore contradictions and ambiguities.
