Jindal School of Languages and Literature (JSLL) Overview

The Jindal School of Languages and Literature (JSLL) is the eleventh school of O. P. Jindal Global University and has been established to encourage innovative research and effectively teach languages, linguistics and literature studies for our present hyper-globalized world, when language learning and intercultural communication are more important to human flourishing and mutual understanding than ever before. Some languages today are shrinking while others are expanding in use and richness. Several languages have expanded their reach to include hundreds of millions of speakers, even in far removed corners of the globe.

Dean, Jindal School of Languages and Literature (JSLL)

The Jindal School of Languages and Literature (JSLL), inaugurated on 23 September 2021 as the eleventh school of O. P. Jindal Global University, serves the university’s mission to become a premier institution for the study of languages, literature, linguistics and associated cultural explorations.  There has, arguably, never been a time when philology-based humanistic studies are more urgently necessary for peaceful coexistence and human flourishing.  All roads of the human and planetary condition lead from language and literature – not only what is written but what is spoken, heard and performed.  Study of language and literature is instrumental in developing our communication skills.  It is also a philosophical activity in that it encourages us to pay close attention to the heritage of our species in all its expressions.
