Welcome to GRM 2024

The Graduate Research Meet is an annual research conference conducted by the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences. It provides a platform for various humanities and social sciences researchers to interact and share their research, initiating a conversation to open up new horizons. Through the 10th edition of GRM, we aim to explore new ideas and methodologies revolving around the theme of 'Power, Movement, and Memory'.

Since its inception in 2013, GRM has been conducted successfully with the help of contributions from premier academic and non-academic organisations of the country like the Indian Council for Social Sciences Research, North Eastern Council, Indian Oil Corporation Limited, Canara Bank, among others.

Conference Theme

Power, Movement, and Memory

While power permeates every facet of human society, it also provides the ground for negotiation. The movement of human and non-human entities (ideas, values, goods, lifeforms and so on), and the production of memories have been a result of, and a challenge to, society’s existing power dynamics. Memory, as a mediated outcome of power and movement, holds central agency for revisiting and reconstructing the past and identities. Going beyond disciplinary conventions, this GRM wishes to explore the functioning of power, movements, and memories as mutually distinct issues and/or in connection with each other.
