META 2018

META
February, in Rome, was the month of fevers. At St. Joseph’s College (Autonomous), the month is associated with another kind of fever altogether.

META is an annual festival of literature, open to college students and the general public, run by The Department of English, St. Joseph’s College (Autonomous), Bangalore.

But Meta?
The Greek term ‘meta’ is often used in the sense of ‘beyond”. The title of our festival reflects the capacity for transcending the everyday that literature confers upon its readers. It also acknowledges the new modes of textuality and expression made possible by technology: a moving beyond what is traditionally seen as literature. And, who knows, after you’ve come by and struck up a couple of conversations, or friendships, you might want to say this is where I meta bunch of nice people.

META 2018 will begin on 7 February 2018 and run till 18 February 2018. This year we celebrate the theme Extraordinary Voyages.
