Conference: Call for paper presentation: 26th & 27th September 2014
Conference theme: Peace within
Mahatma Gandhi said ‘…there is no peace without strife. Strife is inherent in peace. We should know it (strife). Life is a perpetual struggle against strife whether within or without. Hence, the necessity of realizing peace within in the midst of strife’.
The conference seeks to look into and explore and attempt to understand peace within and answer fundamental questions about its meaning, process and necessity with special reference to Mahatma Gandhi.
Within this conference theme, papers are invited from every discipline in the humanities, social sciences and sciences. The conference will support hermeneutical interpretations, narrative life stories and tradition, philosophical, historical, scientific and other approaches and investigations into all essential aspects of Gandhian studies which are conducive to peace. The conference is especially interested in areas of peace research that have cross-disciplinary, cross-religious relevance and new implications for this field of scholarly interest.
