The Department of English Language and Literature, School of Arts and Sciences, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Kochi is organizing a Two-Day International Conference on Reconnaissance of Pandemic Societies on May 4 – 5, 2022. The conference will be held in hybrid mode. Eminent resource persons will deliver their expert lectures on the domain of the conference.
We invite papers from students, scholars, faculty and academicians to deliberate on the proposed area.
Humanity has always shown resilience and acclimation in the hardest times of its evolution. We human beings are accustomed to adapting ourselves to new patterns and systems, that are caused by pandemics, wars or natural calamities.
The Covid-19 pandemic has brought drastic changes in all sectors/ systems of life. The global crisis constructed through the pandemic has paved the way for a plethora of inquiries and has evolved new theoretical conceptions on life and its representations. In the wake of the present pandemic condition, it is also inevitable that we revisit how societies have survived, adapted and found hope in the previous pandemic experiences. The conference probes into questions like; How have such encounters been represented in social and cultural artifacts? How does the experience of the pandemic affect the anthropocentric worldview? Whether the pandemic has brought fresh insights to investigate individuals and societies?
These questions and their elaborations will definitely take us to more crucial understanding of the pandemic as a cultural discourse. Perhaps the reconnaissance of pandemic societies sets a background for more critical and theoretical inquiries into the current discourse as the pandemic still continues to be with us.
The topics that considered for the study include but are not limited to:
Selected papers will be published in a special edition of UGC Care listed Journal/ ISBN book.
