National Seminar on “INSURGENCIES AND DEVELOPMENT” at Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi; Last Date Abstract Submission: 31st August, 2013

There were at least 110 known instances of adivasi-peasant uprisings over a period of 117 years from 1783 to 1900 (Ranajit Guha 1983:13). Ranjit Guha studied these uprisings and, in 1983, he argued that there were ‘insurgencies’ in colonial India which have six elementary aspects-negation, ambiguity, solidarity, transmission, and territoriality. The thrust of his argument was that these were not revolutionary movements. These uprisings were against the ‘taking away’ of people’s means of subsistence by the British-led commercial expansion of forestry and agriculture. Between 1900 and 2013, insurgencies have proliferated, not only against the continued ‘taking away’ of the means of subsistence but ‘more’!!!
It is important to inquire why this proliferation? What ‘more’ is being said? What have been the changes in the modes of ‘insurgency’? Did the first change occur after independence in 1947, and the second after 1989 when the Berlin wall was smashed and the new regimes of neo-liberal governance and economic development were put in place? To discuss this question it will perhaps be necessary to discuss amongst other things, the difference between insurgency and revolution on the one hand, and between these and terrorism on the other. How is ‘insurgency’ constructed? Is it associated with random /spontaneous use of arms against a state regime? Does it not have a vision? Is insurgency constructed in association with the tenets of anarchism or is it a construction of the State? Is it constructed in contrast to revolution, which has a vision and a plan? Further, it important to study at what point of time in history did these and other like forms of protest begin to be classified under the category “terrorism”?
Today from the standpoint of the State, insurgency is a reaction to uneven development (economic, political, social and cultural), increasing disparities and shrinking opportunities. Policy makers and their associated social scientists argue that therefore it is possible to diffuse these insurgencies with better governance, one that ensures development, reduces disparities, and opens up multiple ‘fora’ for opportunities. This understanding is the basis for a new set of counterinsurgency policy interventions.
Thus, the Planning Commission set up an Expert Group on “Development Issues to deal with the causes of Discontent, Unrest and Extremism” in May, 2006. Its task was to identify processes and causes contributing to continued tensions and alienation in the areas of unrest and discontent. The hope was that recommendations made by this group would, if implemented sincerely and promptly, “douse the spreading bushfire of rural discontent.” In 2011, USAID produced a policy document on The Development Response to Violent Extremism and Insurgency. Its purpose was to provide a policy framework that USAID could use to improve the effectiveness of its development tools in responding to violent extremism and insurgency, as well as its capacity to interact constructively with its interagency and other partners. In January 2013 Jairam Ramesh, Minister of Rural Development and Minister of Drinking water and Sanitation gave a talk on 'Democracy, Development and Extremism: Meeting the Challenge of 21st century Maosim in India' at Teen Murti Bhavan, Delhi. Aseem Shrivastava reports that 2

the Minister traced the origins of Maoism to “4 D’s: disconnect, displacement, deprivation and discontent.” Defending the Indian State’s security policies in Central and Eastern India, the Minister said that they would not work without the fifth “D”: “dialogue.”
The subject for discussion is negotiation. What is it? Who are insurgents? Where does their violence come from? What are they saying? Are they being listened to? What is the available apparatus to listen? Could listening be subjected to the imperialism of categories? What constitutes listening?
To discuss these and other related questions is Ranjit Guha’s ‘elementary aspect’ a good starting point. Are negation, ambiguity, solidarity, transmission, and territoriality truly, elementary aspects of insurgency? Would this not depend on the veracity and appropriateness of the historical-anthropological apparatus deployed by Ranjit Guha? How is this to be determined?
A second starting point could be to decommission the term “insurgency”! This could open up a way of leaning to listen. What could be heard are voices trying to overcome the angst. As the work of Albert Camus-“the Rebel’ and Gandhi’s work “My experiments with truth” show, this angst comes from, amongst other things, not finding a space to say and not finding people who listen.
A third starting point could be a hypothesis, that if the development apparatus has been responsible for the disparities, then can this apparatus rectify this situation in a responsible way. This begs the question, is development self-reflexive and self-corrective? Does it have the where-withal to undo the damage it has caused?
There could be several other ways of listening to the angst.
This special issue hopes to open-up different ways to listen and learn about the bearing of insurgency on development or vice versa.
Call for Papers
The National Seminar on “Insurgencies and Development” to be organized by the Centre for Jawaharlal Nehru Studies, Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi (India), aims at bringing together the researcher, academia, policy makers, civil society organizations, industry representatives and other scholars to an international forum for the dissemination of original research results, new ideas and practical experiences which concentrate on both theory and empirics.

Eighth International Conference on Interdisciplinary Social Sciences 2013

The International Conference on Interdisciplinary Social Sciences examines the nature of disciplinary practices, and the interdisciplinary practices that arise in the context of ‘real world’ applications. It also interrogates what constitutes ‘science’ in a social context, and the connections between the social and other sciences. The focus of papers ranges from the finely grained and empirical(research practices and results exemplifying one or more disciplines), to wide-ranging multi-disciplinary and transdisciplinary practices, to perspectives on knowledge and method.
We are inviting proposals for paper presentations, workshops/interactive sessions, posters/exhibits, or colloquia.  For more information about the ideas and themes underlying this community. Proposal ideas that extend beyond these thematic areas will also be considered.

International Conference on Contemporary English Studies: Society, Culture and Language March 6-8, 2013 Organized by Department of English, Assam University & Forum for English Studies, Assam University

The Department of English, Assam University and the Forum for English Studies, Assam
University will jointly organize a three-day International Conference on “Contemporary
English Studies: Society, Culture and Language.” The conference would include a keynote
speech and other invited lectures by eminent scholars as well as presentations by
participants. The maximum number of participants which the conference could welcome
is approximately 200. Proposals for participation from interested faculty members,
research scholars and other academicians engaged with the various branches/areas of
English studies are welcome.
The Concept Note:
By the first decade of the twenty first century, English Studies has become a complex
design of contesting and complementing ideas and interests. In fact, the very shift from
“English” to “English Studies” in current usages foregrounds the fact that the area under
consideration is no longer a unified and uniform one. While till the advent of postcolonial
and other related approaches academic engagement with English meant the study of
British and American literature and some bit of history of the language, today literatures
in English from the former colonies like India, Africa, Canada and Australia are getting
attention and priority. Interestingly, texts originally written in the indigenous languages,
too, are being studied and here, the theory and practice of translation have become
significant tools. The rise in identity politics and awareness in the international scenario
has also considerably promoted the study of writings based on identity politics, such as
feminist, multi-ethnic, queer and various other subaltern groups. Thus the English canon
has begun to expand and renew itself in its journey from the “Eurocentric” to the
“multicultural.” Even within British literature, texts that were traditionally ignored,
neglected or unknown, are emerging as interesting records of human transaction.
So far as studies in English literature/s are concerned, there also seems to be a
gradual marked shift in the tone and approach. It is seen that the Arnoldian-Leavisite
liberal humanist approach is being largely replaced by the new historicist,
deconstructionist, feminist, postcolonial and other similar mode of studies. While the
approaches are diverse and divergent, the only common thread that can be found in these
is a sustained interrogation of the canonical texts for the silences, marginalizations and
exclusions. This has necessitated the change of parameters of literary studies, chiefly in
terms of the transition from the “aesthetic” to the “political.” In spite of deconstruction
and its overarching textualities, there is a constant urge within the field to recognize,
project and interrogate issues primarily related to society, culture and language. In brief,
the boundaries of the cultural politics of English studies are ever shifting.
It must be acknowledged that literary studies and research in English has never
been possible without the help of core social science disciplines like history and
sociology. This has only been intensified and expanded by the recent developments. In
fact, areas like women studies, gender studies, ecology, studies of race and colonialism,
which are some of the major concerns of English studies, primarily belong to Social
Sciences. In view of such revolutionary changes in the scope and focus of the discipline
known as “English Studies,” a constant negotiation with the social sciences has become
In the above context, it deems pertinent to examine and explore the implications
of these changes in English studies. The conference aims at exploring the dynamics and
implications of this transitions which can contribute in preparing a future roadmap for the
discipline. To highlight the major stakes and contentions, a few sub-themes/topics have
been chosen; which, however, are meant to be indicative only, and not exhaustive.
· English Studies and Social Sciences: Concerns and Trends
· English Literatures: The Emerging Canons
· Reinventing British English Literature

Course on Forest and Landscape Governance in Indonesia (Fellowship is available)

What is this new course about?
Forests and forested landscapes are more and more affected by global demands for food, fuel and fibre. These new pressures increasingly influence local landscape dynamics and related decision making processes. As a result, governance of forests and forested landscapes have become complex processes, and a shared responsibility of governments, civil society groups and private sector actors. Many of these actors are experimenting with their newly assigned roles as co-developers and implementers of forest- and landscape governance. And many are the new governance arrangements, which either formally or informally shape forested landscapes. Examples of such arrangements are multi-actor networks, citizen's initiatives, certification schemes, corporate social responsibility (CSR) programmes, and different forms of payment for environmental services (PES).

Why would you apply?

The course offers participants a chance to gain insight in the inter-disciplinary and integrated nature of forest- and landscape governance, in particular the role of stakeholders, institutions, and innovative governance arrangements, in particular  Payment for Environmental Services (PES). And last but not least, it stimulates participants to consider their own role as manager, policy maker or practitioner, making use of a wide range of principles and tools to foster inclusive and informed decision-making at forest and landscape level.

Who is organising the course?

The two weeks course is organised by the Centre for Development Innovation (CDI) of Wageningen University, together with CIFOR and ICRAF. The course offers a unique combination of novel participatory training approaches of CDI with the sound scientific research work of CIFOR and ICRAF.

Where and when will it take place?

The course is planned for September 2st till September 13th, and will take place on the CIFOR/ICRAF campus in Bogor, Indonesia.

Doha, Qatar

From April 4-7, 2013, the College of the North Atlantic-Qatar will be hosting a major international conference in Doha, Qatar, entitled Global Innovators 2013: Leading and Learning in Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET).

The goal of our conference is to bring together delegates from around the world who are renowned for excellence in TVET practice and innovation. Participants will experience a novel and pragmatic suite of strategies, techniques, and tools delivered by the world's leading authorities and advocates for technical and vocational education. Distinguished international plenary speakers, high level roundtable discussions on international TVET frameworks, practical workshops, "real-world" skills developers, and a TVET Exhibition are only some of the offerings. Delegates will witness best practices at work in the field and classroom that positively transform the technical and vocational education learning experience, improve student engagement and support the development mandate inherent in global TVET education.

The conference will focus around 5 central themes:

- Leadership and Innovation in TVET
- Applied Research and TVET
- Teaching and Learning in TVET
- Student Counseling
- Supporting Learners in TVET

At this time, we invite TVET practitioners and researchers to submit abstracts aligned with the above conference themes. We particularly welcome papers that highlight proven and transferable successes in design, delivery, and pedagogy that can be shared with conference delegates for the improvement of global TVET programming and instruction.
