    You are cordially invited to attend the
    Punjabi Subaltern Summit - 2012
    Sunday, January 15, 2012, 11:00 AM to 05:00 PM
    ICSSR Seminar Hall, Panjab University, Chandigarh
    The Punjabi Subaltern Summit is a one-of-its-kind conclave where politicians, thinkers, change agents, writers, artists, academicians and media professionals will try to find a common ground on the pressing problems that plague our state. An attempt to break free from the parochial structures that have suppressed the social narrative on lesser-known issues like caste, religion, representation and federalism. By harnessing the spirit and dialect of new media, it strives to infuse the intellectual mainstream with a sense of purpose and direction, bringing back the long-lost ebullience into its ethos. This non-partisan forum is a bold attempt to reclaim the mantle of Punjabiyat.

    One of its immediate aims is to influence the pre-poll debate in Punjab. We plan to organize this event every year in a bigger and better format, expecting that it will become a fixture or an annual pilgrimage for the regional intelligentsia.

    For detailed information on the agenda and issues to be discussed, please visit www.subaltern.in.
