R.K. Kulkarni did his B.A. in English from Vijay College, Bijapur, and M.A. in English literature from the Karnatak University, Dharwad and has been awarded Ph.D. by the same University for his dissertation on J.B. Priestley. Dr. Kulkarni taught English for more than three decades in different colleges of the B.L.D.E. Association, Bijapur, and retired in 1999 as the Head of the Department of English, S.B. Arts & K.C.P. Science College, Bijapur, and for three years he lectured at the P.G. Department of English in the Karnataka State Womens University, Bijapur. Presently, he is teaching at the P.G. Department of English Studies of the B.L.D.E. Association under the Karnatak University, Dharwad. Dr. Kulkarni is a rare teacher who happily combines erudition and able teaching for which he is loved and admired by his students and colleagues. A scholar in English, Sanskrit and Kannada, he has delivered lectures at various educational and cultural organizations and Institutions on literature and life, and literature and cultural values, apart from participating in seminars, symposia and academic discussions. He believes in eclecticism in literature and therefore holds that for a meaningful research in literary domain, due place should be given to the interdisciplinary study of language, literature, history, philosophy and spiritualism. He brings his wide learning and deep understanding of literature to bear on the writing of his book J.B. Priestley: A Traveller in Time.
