Teaching Workshops

The number of people who study classical texts has decreased considerably these days. Dispelling the belief that ancient language is difficult, communication between ancient and modern languages is needed to bring the valuable ideas of ancient literature to the masses. In this regard CESCK is continuosly conducting advanced classical Kannada texts reading and study workshops across the state . The aim is to train the teachers, lecturers, researchers, graduate and post graduate students who teach Kannada language about the ‘Ways of reading and understanding Halagannada and Nadugannada which are the roots of Modern Kannada texts’. Many workshops have been supported by Kannada Sahitya Parishad too. Various universities and organizations are associated with the centre. A number of senior scholars of Kannada participated as resource persons. Artists were invited to depict classical Kannada Texts through musical recitals. The Center is convinced that around one thousand Kannada faculty and young researchers from different parts of Karnataka State have benefited by participating in these camps through which lakhs of students of Karnataka have been able to read and interpret classical Kannada texts. These camps were held in Belgaum, Chikkaballapur, Chamarajanagar, Bidar, Kolar, Chitradurga, Kodagu, Mandya and Mysore and their brief informations are given here.
