Glocalisation as a process is an off-shoot of globalisation where there is an interface of global as well as local. Looking at it from another angle, this is a post-colonial discourse where there are opportunities for the local and indigenous, economic and cultural practices to grow although with reference to the colonial framework. The aims and objectives of the seminar are to turn the searchlight on indigenous practices using a global outlook and attitude. It will welcome researchers, academics and others who are interested, across disciplines to come up with knowledge, experience, thought and practices in the form of seminar presentations the broad areas of which are noted below.
