Department of Languages, Manipal University Jaipur is organizing a three-day International Conference (online) on Contemporary Issues in South Asian Literature and Culture Studies from 29-31 March 2021.

About the Conference

The author-function is characteristic of the mode of existence, circulation, and functioning of certain discourses within a society. – Michel Foucault

Against this backdrop, this conference on South Asian Literature and Culture Studies aims at studying the issues like racism, colonialism, gender discrimination and bias, hierarchy, identity, war and partition, trauma, cultural discourses portrayed in the writings and aesthetics which thwart the upliftment and progression of South Asian developing nations. The critical responses to such issues can benefit the masses to embrace cultural hybridization, individuality, and globalization in place of conservatism.
