Ambedkar University Delhi is conducting the Young Researchers’ Conference titled Beyond the icon: Ambedkar’s legacy for our times on 23rd February 2018.

The conference hopes to address a range of questions and issues such as:

  • What does it take to understand marginality? What is the place of minorities in our society?
  • How can we merge theory and praxis so that enlightened thought informs our daily choices?
  • Faith, knowledge and society: implications of Ambedkar’s conversation with Buddhism.
  • Creative and intellectual endeavour as activism: Dalit writing, media and society, alternative aesthetics
  • Ways to tackle social prejudice without mythologizing or appropriating Ambedkar
  • Education and social transformation
  • Law and democracy
  • Economics, development and social justice: labour rights, women’s empowerment, etc.

Venue: Ambedkar University Delhi (Kashmere Gate Campus)
