The Department of English of Dyal Singh Evening College, University of Delhi, is organising a one-day national conference on Limbale’s The Outcaste and Dalit Resistance on March 22, 2018 in their campus. The conference aims to throw light on the Dalit literature in the form of poetry, short stories, novels, plays and life narratives that have emerged as a force to reckon with. The interested participants are invited to register for the paper presentation which will later get published in journals and report. Participants can email the abstract to dsec.conference@gmail.com before March 17, 2018. The registration fee is Rs 500.

Conference convenor and teacher-in-charge, Department of English, Dr Brati Biswas says: “Beginning with poetic expressions, Dalit writers started experimenting with the form of autobiography in the 1980s. Author Sharankumar Limbale’s Akkarmashi or The Outcaste appeared in 1984 and was immediately hailed as a contemporary classic forwarding the cause of the Dalits across the nation. This conference will engage the scholars, professors, and students with questions of ethics, morality, gender, religion and politics. The participants can registered for paper presentation on the subject questioning conventional notions of Dalit and their ethics, idea of work and labour, love and marriage, women in the society, quest for identity, narrating the Dalit self, education and empowerment, religion, translation of the text into English and related issues, quest for legitimacy through writing, dalit aesthetics and much more.”
