General Conference Information:
IAARHIES & Government Mohindra College, Patiala, Punjab are pleased to announce a Joint International Conference on War Literature: Revisioning across Genres – ICWLRG – 2018 to be organized at Government Mohindra College, Patiala, Punjab, India on 16-17 November, 2018. The papers and posters presentation would be the research outputs of the conference, which will be shared with the government, industry, and academia. Invited authors will present their respective papers or posters during the interactive sessions of scheduled conference. In addition, the authors will have their work published in the IAARHIES associated subject based International Journals (ISSN) and Conference Proceedings, which will be available online and give authors widespread visibility to their work.
Theme of the Conference:
The two-day international conference would focus on the relooking and revisioning of the war literature, which has existed since the first literary texts were written. Scholars have been quick to acknowledge that war is a dominant force in the works of the three earliest cultures: the Greeks, the Romans, and the Hebrews. Since Homer’s Iliad and The Odyssey, war culture has been reflected in the literature. War is as universal as themes of love or death or time or human frailty. A large body of literary criticism exists on the American Civil War, the Spanish American War, World War I, World War II and the Holocaust, the Cold War, French and Indian revolutions and the nuclear age, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and the ongoing conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. The 11 September 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and 26/11 Mumbai terrorist attacks as well as other acts of terrorism around the globe have resulted in a new body of literature that considers the War on Terror.
With the incessant cultural wars and war for hegemony going on, the need to interrogate the history of war, especially in the twentieth century has arisen. War as such has comparatively not been an area of much focus and with the gradual inflow of books on war, in the form of fiction and non-fiction, it is imperative to relook at history from the searching eyes of literary lenses.
In the postmodern times when the revisiting and re-reading of the historical documents and pieces of literature is very much in vogue, it makes sense to go into the annals of war literature.
Considering the ability of literature and particularly war literature to interrogate and explore the legacies of political conflict around the world, the need of the hour is to pay back the unsung, unwept and unheard heroes their due by bringing their courage, valor, gallantry, etc. to light through debates and discussions.
Though being at the footnotes in the overall Post World War scenario since ages, it’s imperative that Indian soldiers and their historic contributions should be foregrounded in the new emerging narrative of political and literary discourses to deliver them poetic justice.
We call for papers revisioning the existing war literature with the following sub-themes in mind. Of course, one can go beyond the suggested ones also:

About the Host College:
Govt. Mohindra College, Patiala, is a gift of H. H. Maharaja Mohinder Singh (1852-76) of Patiala to his state subjects. One of the oldest institutions in the entire North India, Govt. Mohindra College, Patiala, is a living monument of rare magnificence and breath-taking grandeur. At the time of its inception in 1875, it was the only institution of its kind in a vast area stretching from Lahore to Delhi.
The College was established to provide free education to the state subjects as this region was educationally impoverished. His Excellency, The Earl of Northbrook, the then Viceroy of India laid the foundation stone of the College building on 30th March 1875. The building was completed in about nine years and His Excellency, Viceroy Lord Ripon performed the Opening Ceremony on 17th March, 1884. At that time the College was affiliated to the Calcutta University. The college imparted free education to the state subjects until 1937. The tradition of imparting free education for girl students up to the graduation level is still continuing.
Since its inception, the College has covered a long journey of about 140 years in a regal style bolstered by the untiring efforts of the teaching faculty and scintillating achievements of its alumni in all fields of human activity, be it Sports, Culture, Academics, Civil and Defence Services, Industry, Commerce, Business, Politics and so on and so forth. This 140 year young institution stands head and shoulders high amidst the seminaries of learning in North India and has become a symbol of hope and aspirations not only of scholars and educators devoted to the pursuit of education but of those youngsters with dreams in their eyes who cannot afford expensive education in many private institutions which have proliferated in recent times.
In recognition of its contribution to higher learning the Govt. of India issued a commemorative Postage Stamp on Mohindra College on March 14, 1988. Later on the State Govt. adjudged the college as one of the four ‘Model’ colleges of the State. The College was awarded the A+ Grade by the ‘NAAC’ in April 2003 in the Cycle-I of NAAC and in the Cycle-II, the college is awarded with “A” Grade with a CGPA “3.86” by the ‘NAAC’ in February 2016, the highest score given to any college in the country. In 2006 the University Grants Commission accorded CPE status to the College under its scheme of ‘Colleges with Potential for Excellence’, a status which the College enjoyed until 2014. In 2009, the Department of Biotechnology of the Ministry of Science and Technology, Govt. of India, selected the college for financial assistance under its ‘Star College in Life Sciences Scheme’. The College has been selected for being a Community College under the Community College Scheme of the UGC.
The College continues to make rapid strides in academics, sports and cultural fields. And this obviously is in consonance with the College mission and goals.
For its various achievements in the academic, cultural and sports fields, the College has maintained its premier position in the entire North India.
