Research Methodology across Disciplines: Re-thinking Ethnicity, Gender and History during the Post-Pandemic (16-30 August 2021)
When life itself has lost its strength and vigour and the world is heading towards new paradigm, the dynamics of education has also changed. The study of various disciplines in present time requires a shift in stance to add fresh interpretations. Coronavirus adds new interpretive significance to the disciplines. One angle of study is the change in methodology of the existing topics and the other one is the creation of new texts based on the offshoots of Coronavirus. It requires a systematic effort to look at issues from contemporary perspectives. The aims and objectives of this workshop/course are to identify the issues which beset us most and use those both as field and methodology. Next, steps are to be taken to put these in academic format for proper discussion and dissemination. The planks are to be reset and the tropes are to be recreated for the prospective study. Some of the specific areas identified for focus are as under, although there is always scope for explaining the areas which might not have come under our jurisdiction unconsciously. Such exploration is most welcome.
