Call for Papers: Reflections on Culture; Culture and Gender

Organizer: Department of English, Sree Kerala Varma College in Collaboration with Kerala Sahitya Academi

Concept Note

Culture and gender have perpetually governed our everyday existence and the concept of gender has persistently been associated with the aspect of culture as a ‘social construction.’ Multiple ruminations pertaining to the inevitable relationship between gender and culture have always fascinated the academic world. The interdisciplinary nature of the association between gender and culture demands a broad approach of enquiry. The seminar intends to discuss the established assumptions about gender and culture bringing forth the theoretical and pragmatic aspects of the aforesaid theme. It aims to ponder, problematize and analyse the multiple perspectives on gender and culture from a holistic perspective, incorporating the voices of agreement, dissent and concern.

This seminar henceforth would attempt to encapsulate the inherent multiple perspectives of the theme by incorporating both the theoretical and the pragmatic dimensions of gender studies and cultural theory. It, furthermore, envisages a dynamic academic interaction where the critical and historical paradigms of the gender-culture association can be perceptually evaluated.
