The worth of work done in a university is weighed in writing. Students write reports, assignments, papers and dissertations; faculty and researchers put out their work in journals and books. What is written is also written about. What is written forms the network and the net worth of knowledge made systematic and accessible. Writing contrarily demands attentive isolation and a steadfast reciprocal connection to the community. Writing in the university contrarily asserts and blurs distinctions between academic and creative writing, writing for experts and writing made available to non-experts. The discipline of writing is as notorious for its difficulty as its fame in the unmatched pleasure of slowly unfolding, perfectly crafted sentences. For its annual conference, the department of English at Shiv Nadar University invites engagement with the discipline of writing as it shapes academic disciplines, practice of scholarship, creative writing and writing in public discourses.

Prof. Richard E. Miller of Rutgers University will deliver the keynote address. Prof. Miller has written extensively about the evolving shape of writing in higher education in the United States.

Dr. Denise Comer, Director of First Year Writing at The Thompson Writing Program, Duke University will lead the conversation on academic writing pedagogies.

Papers can be about but are not restricted to the following:

• Academic Writing Pedagogy

- challenges in administering writing centers, formulating courses and syllabi, teacher training, using technology, remedial writing courses, processes of writing, revision and review, effective feedback and assessment, connecting reading and writing

• Teaching Creative Writing

- challenges in teaching creative writing, teaching voice, the relationship between academic and creative writing, organizing syllabi, assessing performance, aspiration, practice and craft, writers on writing

• Using Writing to Teach

- From Archaeology to Zoology, how do disciplines other than academic writing teach writing? Making writing an effective tool in teaching undergraduates, assignments that elicit critical engagement, using creative writing assignments and projects as teaching tools

• Who do We Write For?

-cultures and philosophies of writing, language of expertise, writing for the public, publishing written work, the changing venues of publishing writing, publishable writing and the hand of editors, the brave new world of writing and publishing online

• Writing in the World

-how does a writer write in the world? Writers and public discourses, responding to crisis in writing, putting the world in words

Conference coordinators:

Dr. Tulika Chandra, Dr. Anannya Dasgupta, Dr. Akhil Katyal, and Prof. Sambudha Sen

For queries, conference convener: Dr. Anannya Dasgupta ad509@snu.edu.in

As part of its Early Career Research Scholars' Colloquium, the Department of History at Shiv Nadar University organized a talk on The Rise of Vernacular Economics in 20th Century Bengal: Benoy Sarkar and the Bangiya Dhanbijnan Parishad by Dr. Iman Mitra, Assistant Professor, Centre for Development Practice and Research, TISS, Patna. His talk examined the vernacularization of economics in early twentieth century-Bengal by Benoy Kumar Sarkar, a public intellectual of that time and his research initiative Bangiya Dhanbijnan Parishad. Sarkars decisive contribution in the study of social sciences in India is the unique method of research which addressed the tension between historicity and contextuality creatively and in a most ingenious manner by proposing a combination of two histories of life - the diverse life history of individual economic agents, and the unique life history of the nation

For me calligraphy is a purely spiritual experience. The way my pen, ink, paper and hand interact is a play of action and reaction. I am not sure of how the stroke is going to end or how ink is going to react on the paper or how the tool is going to help ink form interesting unexpected texture. I enjoy this process of uncertainty, surprises, unplanned exploration more than a final outcome, says Nikheel Aphale, a passionate calligrapher, who's interest lies especially in the Devanagri script. His calligraphy practice primarily emphasizes on the abstraction of letterforms, which further gets translated into different mediums, be it paintings, logos or products. On 12th November, watch Nikheel demonstrate the mysterious art of calligraphy at #TEDxShivNadarUniversity

What if there was music that you could hear at any point of the day, in any mood, and be guaranteed to experience a sense of calm and joy? Socially awkward 22 year old Kumail Hamid from Mumbai has, for the past six years, been experimenting with a variety of genres, making each live set a unique, crazy experience. His music boldly pushes the level of experimentation of the current "scene" beyond its club friendly confines, exploring the more ethereal regions of sound. Heavily manipulated live recordings coupled with atmospheric synths and meticulously panned rhythm sections form the fundamental characteristics of his tracks. Kumail claims that his music is deeply influenced, and has been shaped by artists such as Shigeto, High Water, Shlohmo, Mndsgn, Devendra Banhart, Jameszoo, Flying Lotus, Lapalux, Soosh, Timber Timbre and Earl Sweatshirt. On 12th November, watch Kumail bring a breathtaking performance to life on the #TEDxShivNadarUniversity stage!
