A Two-Day UGC-Sponsored Seminar on Teaching Social Sciences: Challenges & Opportunities In the New Millennium.
On being invited to participate in the UGC sponsored Seminar on the 29th and 30th November at St.Joseph’s College, Bangalore and to deliver the Valedictory Address, Prof. B.R.A.Rao of the Institute considers it a pleasure to invite the delegates and their students to participate through this blog site through discussions on the following topics. Learned Professors participating in the Seminar may help in addition to their inputs, in moderating this discussion.
This blog invites a discussion based on Sociological, Economic and Political perspectives on the evolution of political, economic and social life and art from the Mauryan period to the end of the Gupta period with reference to literary and archaeological resources.
The following points may kindly be emphasized:
1.How far was the evolution progressive from the point of view of the weaker sections of society and women?
2. How did these sections express or assert themselves?
3. How far did this evolution lay the foundations for the conquest and subjugation of India by invaders?
I hope this site will throw up more such issues for discussion with your active cooperation
