Maharashtra to host Conference on "Mainstreaming the Marginalized: Perspectives in Humanities, Commerce and Science"
An International Conference on "Mainstreaming the Marginalized: Perspectives in Humanities, Commerce and Science" is going to be held on 28th January, 2017, at Loknete Gopinathji Munde Arts, Commerce and Science College at Mandangad in Maharastra, in collaboration with M.G.E.W Society's Centre for Humanities & Cultural Studies, Thane, in which papers will be presented in Hindi, Marathi and English.

The interdisciplinary international conference aims to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas on the issues of Marginalized and vulnerable sections of the world. It is stated that the present conference would deal with the problems related with the groups and people suffering from marginalisation and the ways to bring them in the mainstream of development.

"Marginality is an experience that affects millions of people throughout the world. The concept of marginalization is a continuous process whereby certain sections have been pushed to the fringes of the society in socio-economic and political spheres," informed the event organisers.

According to the concept note of event, the marginalised voices were suppressed for centuries and deprived from active participation in societies across the world. They were exploited in all means and highly discriminated by man-made institutionalsed mechanism of laws and ideologies detrimental to their well-being.

Furthermore, since the main components behind marginalisation are denial of access to power and vulnerability to social exclusion; democratic politics and imperatives of social justice demand policies and laws that join the main stream. Thus, there are many factors that cause marginalisation.

The papers will be on the topics such as voices from the margin; woman's writings today and feminism; gender discrimination; dalit literature; minority literature; dual-marginality; and many more.

The themes like achieving gender equality, social inclusion, and human rights, Make in India and inclusive growth; skill development initiatives; women empowerment; science, technology, and the marginalised people; science education and the marginalised; e-tourism and e-culture; e-learning; and many other similar topics.
