Scholars in a scramble to do research on T
Nikhila Henry, TNN, April 23, 2011

HYDERABAD: The “T” agitation that has played havoc with academic schedules of state universities has had an inadvertent `academic’ side effect. Varsities are now reporting a spurt in research on Telangana this admission season in politically charged university campuses.

Making a beeline to study all things about `T’ are young researchers wanting to take up topics related to the agitation for political and social analysis. Officials of both state and central universities say they are flooded with PhD proposals on cultural and political topics that are specific to the region.

If until a couple of years ago, research on Telangana was largely done in the domain of history, political science and sociology, students from literature and even media classrooms are applying for PhDs on the `T’ region. Subjects they are choosing range from public policy and conflict resolution in the region, economics of regional politics to cultural representations of the region in Telugu literature and linguistic nationalism.
