A Two Day International Conference on Interdisciplinarity: Contemporary Research in Humanities, Social Sciences and Management Studies COIN – 2017
(Coining New Ideas. Transcending New Horizons)


The Department of Humanities and Social Sciences, NIT Meghalaya, is organizing A Two Day International Conference on ‘Interdisciplinarity: Contemporary Research in Humanities, Social Sciences and Management Studies’ (COIN – 2017) on 21st& 22nd July 2017 (Friday & Saturday) in the institute campus

This is the 2nd conference of the department. Last year the department had organized COIN – 2016. COIN – 2016 was a national conference. The 1st Conference had good representations from various parts of India, especially the North Eastern Region of the country. We got resource persons and delegates from JNU, ViswaBharati, Bodoland University, Gauhati University, IIT Guwahati, Tripura University, Manipur University, NIT Silchar, NIT Agartala, NERIE Umiam, EFLU Shillong, NEHU, NEHU Tura Campus, Royal Global University, ICFAI University Meghalaya, GIMT Guwahati, and other prestigious institutes and colleges.

Contemporary Research Studies are no longer bound to one discipline only. To have a holistic idea of the entire phenomena of study under question has seen the need of drawing concepts and ideas from various disciplines. These major transformations exhort the need to come up with events that encourage such kind of Interdisciplinary Studies. The concept of Interdisciplinary studies has been practised since ages but the concept of Interdisciplinarity is an upcoming and well accepted discipline.

Currently, many Universities and Institutions have started focusing on the concept of Interdisciplinarity. The ever increasing number of interdisciplinary researchers displays a sign of development as new ideas, concepts and methods are added to the storehouse of collective knowledge. However more so than the area of research, what are more captivating are the methods or approaches employed while conducting the research which by the way differs not only from one country or university to another but even from one scholar to the other who are otherwise united by one objective.

The focus of the proposed conference is to examine and evaluate interdisciplinary research areas. The themes to be focused on are research areas under the scope of Humanities and Social Sciences, including Management Studies.
