Organized by the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences, IIT Guwahati, the Graduate Research Meet is one of the largest multidisciplinary conferences in North East India. The 8th edition of GRM will be held on 6 and 7 January 2023 . This conference brings together research scholars from various sub-disciplines in Humanities and Social Sciences. The focus theme for this year's GRM is Humanities & Social Sciences in Transition: Perspectives, Exchanges, and Translations .

Moving forward from the crisis posed by the pandemic, the need for Humanities and Social Sciences to focus on transitions in the human world is entailing as never before. These transitions depend not only upon tangible and intangible exchanges but also on translations--the multiple acts of crossing boundaries, mediums, and meanings. The active intervention of HSS scholarship is needed to comprehend their associated connotations and perspectives. However, the complexities of these transitions, sometimes natural and some times deliberately undertaken, often fail to capture our attention. This conference aims to focus on the exchanges and translations that make possible a better understanding of Humanities and Social Sciences in transition. It will also explore the different meanings of 'transitions,' 'exchanges,' and 'translations.' The conference thus has a two-fold intention.While it gives space for scholars of HSS to examine the conceptof transition, these explorations will help us comprehend the transition of HSS itself.
