Osmania University Centre for International Programmes(OUCIP) is organizing the international Conference on “Voices Unheard: Indigenous and Tribal Literature in English and English Translation” at the Osmania University Campus, Hyderabad, on March 22-24, 2019.
Osmania University Centre for International Programmes (OUCIP) came into existence in September 2006 after the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India handed over the management and administration of the American Studies Research Center (ASRC) to Osmania University.
About the conference:
India is rich with a diversity of religions, arts, customs, races, traditions, and languages. While the government of India recognizes twenty-two official languages, there are over 880 languages spoken in the country.
Until recently, the tribal literature created in non-mainstream languages has not been very recognized or available for an Indian or global audience.
However, the Indian government and prominent personalities, including social activists and politicians, have stepped forward to encourage the conservation and translation of these unheard voices and to share their literary gems with the world.
Writers like Rita Chowdhary, Indira Goswami, Birendra Kumar Bhattacharya, M K Binodini Devi, Lil Bahdur Chhetri and Asit Rai along with other prominent tribal and Adivasi writers are yet to be included and introduced in our the curriculum of the ‘Indian literature in English Translation’.
Therefore, the conference aims to deliberate on the issues relating to these literary
explorations and invites papers on the areas explored and unheard so far, including the
1. Tribal Literature
