The Tamil Literary Garden invites undergraduates and graduate students to submit an essay on the topic: “New Technologies: Refashioning a Tamil Identity.”
The last few decades have witnessed a burgeoning of new technologies making it possible to speak across spaces and to communities in ways that weren’t even fathomed in earlier time periods.
Not only do new technologies provide access to a broad spectrum of people in a short span of time, they enable forms of creativity that did not exist before.
Participants’ essays should critically examine the impact of new technologies on creating, sustaining, or imagining a Tamil identity.
Essays should not exceed 3000 words and should be submitted on or before April 30th 2014 to [email protected]
The competition is open to participants around the world. The winner will receive a certificate, $1000.00 at the Tamil Literary Garden awards ceremony in June and will have their essay published in KALAM magazine.
