Re: When your subject matter becomes inherently "political" in the contemporary context

It’s It’s a great question, one that I've given ample thought from the position of student and more recently a TA. There are any number of subtexts to pursue, but I will address here what I see as the ethical nub of the issue.

Re: When your subject matter becomes inherently "political" in the contemporary context

Hi there!

It's a very important area of students' growth.

I teach English (both literature & language) to Engineering students.

At such Engineering institutes, in India, large number of students come from privileged backgrounds.

It seems, in the last 4-5 years, students have undergone a change. At my institute, the last time I asked my students why they were studying Engineering, they answered to succeed and to "make big bucks!"

Another aspect of Engineering students, at least, at my institute, is about caste-politics.
