II National Students’ Conference on Literary and Cultural Studies
Centre for Comparative
School of Humanities
University of Hyderabad
Researchers at Work Conference
Students’ Conference on Literary and Cultural Studies
25th – 27th September, 2012
RAW.CON or Researchers at Work Conference 2012 symbolizes a student initiative. We, the
postgraduate and research students from the Centre for Comparative Literature,
University of Hyderabad, believe that a student conference would create a
platform for the researching student community. Such spaces are valuable and
would contribute a lot through discussions, exchange and sharing of ideas, interrogations
and interventions on interdisciplinary studies from universities around the
country. RAW.CON 2012 -- a three-day national students’ conference planned and
organized by students and for students, with the support of the Centre and the
University, is happening for the second consecutive year.
The focus is on Interdisciplinarity, urged
by the need to transcend frontiers. RAW.CON
hopes to provide an ‘ideal’ legroom for researchers to think beyond
disciplines, explore and test paradigms, yet be rigorous and mindful of the
demands of quality research. We hope RAW.CON would provide a dynamic space/platform
for upcoming scholars.
RAW.CON invites students and researchers from all over India
for this fun-filled, three day conference. We invite papers on the following
De-Constructing Caste Nations and Sub-nationalisms
Religion and Representation Gendering Language
Centering Margins New Trends in Cinema
Re-reading Histories Comparing Literatures
Popular and The Academic Identities
Literatures and Cultures Media, Representation and Violence
Research papers in related
areas are also welcome! In addition, we invite panels on issues of contemporary
literary and cultural relevance.
