CfP: First World War in the Indian Context: International Seminar

January/ February 2018

The St Aloysius College (Mangalore, Karnataka, India) plans to organize a two-day international seminar on the theme The First World War in the Indian Context and invites scholars in Humanities, Arts, Social Sciences and in related fields to participate.

The Theme and the Context
It is 100 years since the First World War took place. As all of us know, though the Great War was the result of complex political developments of Europe, it had large influence on Indian society, economy and political life. It was mainly due to the fact that India was a colony of the British. The British too wanted the cooperation of Indians. Mahatma Gandhi who had returned to India after his African sojourn during the war had encouraged Indians to join the British forces. Indians had immensely contributed to the British war efforts in the form of men and ammunitions as well as financial resources.

Important information
Those intending to present papers can contact the Chief Coordinator at the earliest opportunity. They can also send their papers before 30th November 2017 (along with an abstract).

A detailed brochure with sub-themes would be sent to those who are participating and presenting the papers.
