About the Conference

The National Virtual Conference on Narrativizing Tribal Life in the Context of COVID- 19 (Emic and Etic Perspectives) is organised by Kartik Oraon College, Ranchi from Feb 25-27, 2021.

This conference, Narrativizing Tribal Life in the Context of Covid-19 (Emic and Etic Perspectives), conceptualized on a broad, inclusive and self-explanatory theme, attempts to record the travails and tribulations of the tribal people during the exodus, the organization of society after the influx of these labourers and the forms of adjustments that take place in the lives of these discriminated, disadvantaged and marginalized people.

The conference promises to provide a national academic platform for scholars interested in bringing out the perspectives on the experiences of the tribal and other marginalized communities during the COVID pandemic. 

This documentation of their experiences could be deemed necessary as reliable and valid historic data that can play a vital role in the construction of their identity in the nation. Secondly, the conference wants to consolidate scholars’ perspective on the experiences of these marginalized communities and also their post-lockdown anxieties about the hardships so that suitable policies can be framed in future by the state authorities.
