Concept Note

As an aesthetic activist ethos, Literature has always been cognizant of social power structures. It has always aligned itself with the struggle for empowerment and emancipation. It gives vent to the aspirations and inspirations of the people and has, by unravelling the seams of power hierarchies, led to the poetics and politics of resistance. identity assertion and egalitarian world views. In the process, it often becomes the voice of the voiceless, the center for the margins and a space for resilience. Faiz hints at this role of literature when he says. “Bol ke lab azad hein tere” or when he reiterates. “Mujhse pehli si muhabbat mere mehboob na maang”. In other words, in its expressive felicity. literature can be a medium of articulation that is identity endowing in its subversive yet humanising credo. It continuously centers people-centric poetics and decentres the status-quoist politics. There is a considerable literary corpus that revolves around the issues of marginality. resistance and resilience. The proposed International Conference on “Literature, Marginality and Resilience” seeks to create a literary debate on these issues in the context of the contemporary. It aims to bring student, scholars and academics together to critically engage with these issues from multiple perspectives and diverse locations.
