About Conference

History as a subject of Social Sciences has been vividly read and used as a tool to legitimatize different perspectives made by various individuals, groups and nations in almost all ages and places across the globe. History is an analytical survey of the past. It has been undertaken by professional historians influenced by different perspectives and approaches to history writing. Due to its nature, history without any perspective would be merely a collection of facts. Thus, it is important to understand the scattered facts through the lens of different perspectives. Conveniently, history writing is carried out by varied perspectives i.e., Nationalists, Marxists, Subalterns, etc. The Nationalist's perspective focuses on the glory of the past and depicted it from the Indian point of view. On the other , Marxist scholars centre around the ownership of the mode of production in Indian history. Whereas, the subaltern perspective emphasizes the ‘history from below’ focusing on the lower strata of society, including Dalits, tribes and women. As a result, these perspectives provide a direction and meaning to history and scope to cover the vast section of society. Thus, it also germinates the varied ideas of nationalism, economic equality and social liberation. In the same vein, history can be considered as an amalgamation of different perspectives and a critical study of consequential societal influence. The proposed conference will be an attempt to explore the major themes of history through different perspectives and influences on society, culture, politics, media and literature.


The international conference will provide an opportunity to social scientists, academician and researchers to re-investigate and re-define history its perspectives and influences. Different narratives and perspectives would be discussed by intellectuals on the different branches of History from multidisciplinary perspective. Conference will open the gateway to study the various dimensions and flavours of History; explore History from multidisciplinary perspective and develop new perceptions, methodologies and theories about History. The issues that will be discussed will be around the sub-themes like Contemporary History, Cultural History/ Mystic/Religious History, Regional/National/International History, Myths VS History.
