ABOUT THE SEMINAR

the Fourth Undergraduate Research Conference on Liberal Arts and Humanities will be held on 3rd and 4th of April, 2020 at the O.P. Jindal Global University, Sonipat. This marks the continuation of the success of our conferences from 2017-2019.The world today is characterized by a questioning and distrust of established institutions. Manipulating data, ignoring facts, hypocrisy in leadership, and self-aggrandizing politics is obstructing serious engagement with pivotal contemporary issues. This puts a strain on civil society and institutional frameworks designed to promote human capabilities, and necessitates a dramatic reorganization of social receptivity to new ideas.

Themes related to liberal arts, humanities, earth and environmental sciences, and different forms of expressive arts are welcome.
