Confluence Series on under-represented groups in academia.

Full Article

Confluence has invited a number of articles that discuss the various issues pertaining to under-represented groups in academia. The articles deal with varied themes ranging over working in the north east region of India, issues faced in academia by people with disabilities, gender questions, questions on caste and much more. While some of these have been addressed on various fora, silence largely prevails in other areas. The articles discuss aspects of what were the issues, steps taken to alleviate them and give suggestions on what is to be done. We will try to include as many voices as possible to produce a harmonious and complementary spectrum of views.
