Third Annual Seminar in the Social Sciences
This day-long seminar will showcase undergraduate, postgraduate, and doctoral research in the social sciences in India. It will engage with wide-ranging contemporary topics in the social sciences and provide a forum for students from various institutions to engage in
exchange of academic knowledge.
The seminar aims to encourage high quality research as an important part of the undergraduate, postgraduate, and doctoral curricula in India. It will provide an opportunity to students from various disciplines within the social sciences to present and receive a critical review and useful comments on their research.
Participants will also be able to engage with topics of contemporary relevance and rigorous methods employed in social sciences research. This seminar aims to establish an academic forum for students of the social sciences to showcase their work.
In doing away with an overarching theme, we wish to encourage submission of high-quality research in the fields of psychology, economics, sociology, anthropology, gender studies, and public policy.
Papers presented at past editions of the Seminar have been multi-disciplinary in nature.
