The genesis of subaltern emerged as a critical concept of extreme importance in post-colonial theory and literature. The subaltern studies itself is a discipline. It is also interdisciplinary subject. For the first time the term ‘Subaltern’ is used by Italian Marxist Antonio Gramsci. In Latin ‘sub’ means ‘under’ and ‘alter’ means ‘other’. So literally it denotes to any person or group of persons belonging to inferior rank. They may also belong to any class, gender, sex, ethnicity and religion. The subaltern refers to any specific marginalized situation in any given cultural or social context. Subaltern consciousness is one of the characteristics of subalternity. Antonio Gramsci emphasized the significance of the word in terms of class, gender, caste, marginalization, race and culture of the society whereas Gayatri Spivak used the term for the colonised and the oppressed people, working class, gender and the women whose voice has been muted. Ranjith Guha also denoted that the term expresses about class, caste, age and gender. The concept of subaltern studies prominence is derived from Marxism and Post-structuralism. One of the most recent sub divisions of post-colonial theory is the subaltern studies.

The subaltern themes are reflected in Indian Writing in English. It is expected from the paper presenters, Academicians and the scholars to explore subaltern themes as reflected in Post-colonial Indo-Anglian fiction in the writings of Mulk Raj Anand, Anita Desai, Bhabhani Bhattacharya, Nayantara Sehgal, Kushwanth Singh, V.S.Naipul, Salman Rushdie, Shashi Deshpande , Kamal Das, Bharti Mukharjee, Arundati Roy, Jumpa Lahiri, Kiran Desai, Amitav Ghosh, Mahasweta Devi, Rohinton Mistry, Chetan Bhagat, Amish Tripathi and other contemporary writers. It is anticipated from the participants to explore the subaltern themes such as Oppression, caste, religion Gender discrimination, marginalization, exploitation, migrations, class distinction, Racial feelings, Diasporic elements, ethnicity as mirrored in Indo-Anglian Writings. This Seminar will be highly useful platform for the deliberations that take place on the concept of subaltern themes.

Model United Nations Conference 2015


Model United Nations is a simulation of the United Nations, which is an intergovernmental organization consisting of 192 countries. Model United Nations, also known as “Model UN” or “MUN”, simulates certain bodies of the United Nations, predominantly the deliberative bodies where countries send delegates to meet and discuss International policy on a variety of issue.

Model United Nation involves researching, public speaking, debating, and writing, often along with creative thinking, teamwork and leadership skills. Model United Nation Conference includes a series of simulations in which students act as though they are a country’s delegates or representatives to the United Nations or other Intergovernmental organizations.

Prior to Model United Nation conferences, each student gets assigned a country and a committee. Each committee meets separately and debates several topics pertaining to the purpose of that committee. Delegates attempt to persuade others to support the objectives of his or her country in dealing with each topic. The entire committee works together to develop a resolution or multiple resolutions aiming to resolve the issue at hand.

A Model United Nation’s delegate is a student who assumes the role of an ambassador to the United Nations. He or she does not have to have experience in international relations. Anyone can participate in MUN, so long as they have the ambition to learn something new, and to work with people to try and make a difference in the world. MUN students tend to go on to become great leaders in politics, law, business, education and even medicine.








Institute of Law, Nirma University, Ahmedabad proudly present’s its inaugural edition of Model United Nations Conference (ILNU MUN’ 15) to be held from 13th February 2015 to 15th February 2015.

Model United Nations Conference is a mock United Nations setting where the students play the role of delegates and ambassadors from different countries of the world and put together one large debate over the presented agenda.

We will host three committees on the model of United Nations setting; namely:

  1. The United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC)
  2. The United Nations Security Council (UNSC)
  3. The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP)

These three committees will be chaired by some of the best possible executive board members and the International Press covering the event will only add to the enriching experience. We have put forth contemporary and debate encouraging agendas for all three committees. The agenda for the UNHRC is “Cooperation among the countries to guarantee the rights of Involuntarily Displaced People (Refugees).” The agenda for the UNSC is “Protection of Civilians in armed conflict.” And the agenda for UNEP is “Environmental hazards of establishing industrial units in the underdeveloped and developing countries by the developed countries.” These agendas are open to interpretation by the executive board and will provide sufficient platform to the delegates to freely debate and deliberate their ideas and frame a resolution at the end of the three day event. These agendas have been framed to act as an encouraging force to steer this multi- academia event towards the right spirit of the MUNs.

The registration charges for the event are INR 800 (without accommodation) and INR 1300 (with accommodation).
