EDITORS' NOTE

Dibrugarh University Journal of English Studies (DUJES, ISSN [Print] 0975-5659, ISSN [Online] 2581-7833) volume 30 marks a significant moment in its journey that coincides with the glorious hundred years of some seminal works of the Modernist intervention in English literature, namely, T. S. Eliot’s The Waste Land (1922), James Joyce’s Ulysses (1922) and Virginia Woolf’s Jacob’s Room (1922), to name but a few. Taking this as an opportunity to revisit the Modernist movement in literature and its trajectory till the present time through a spectrum of literary works, this special volume primarily focuses on reading modernism from contemporary critical trajectories. Besides revisiting the particular historical juncture, this issue of the journal remembers the life and contribution of Professor Dilip Kumar Barua (1933–2021), a key figure in the inception of this journal. We fondly remember Professor Barua’s significant contribution to the growth of the journal, then titled Gleanings (1976–77). Moreover, Professor Barua, as a connoisseur of Modernism, translated Eliot’s The Waste Land into Assamese as Chan Pora Mati (1998). This volume of DUJES commemorates along with hundred years of modernism Professor Dilip Kumar Barua’s contribution to the growth of English studies in this part of the region.
