Int’l conf on 4th World Literature and Culture

International Conference on Fourth World Literature and Culture
Venue: Government of Maharashtra’s Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex, Pune, India
Organizer: Higher Education and Research Society, Navi Mumbai, India
12th & 13th September 2014

International Conference on Fourth World Literature & Culture is organised by Higher Education and Research Society, a Navi Mumbai based Government Registered Educational Society. The conference renders a humble platform for deliberation upon the state policies and human endeavours to bridge the digital divide between the Fourth World and rest of the globe. It also problematizes the son-of-the-soil dynamics as one third of the ethnic civil wars could be labelled son-of-the-soil conflicts. The conference could rationalize reality of the ongoing marginalization of the Fourth World Nations by the imperial power under the banner of ‘modernization’, ‘progress’ and ‘development’. It intends to initiate the investigation that accounts for both the process of integration on global scale and the process of self-identification on the local indigenous level. The distinct literary representation of the indigenous people is quite rare. Rather, it becomes their appropriation in the fold of mainstream culture eliminating their uniqueness. The conference not only encourages but makes a strong plea for voicing the silenced ethnic marginal. The Mainstream writers’ literary representation of these ethnic minority groups often tends to be a romanticization, objectification or mere stereotyping. Hence there is an urgent need of a separate niche of the Fourth World Literature to be carved on the Literary Canon.
