CIPOD Seminar Series

The seminar activity of the Centre is integral to its teaching programmes. The ‘Wednesday Seminars’ are normally held on Wednesday mornings, when classes are not in session. These seminars provide a platform for debate and discussion and a lively exchange of ideas over contemporary issues, wherein the students of the Centre have the opportunity to interact with scholars and practitioners from all parts of India and abroad. Since the regularization of the Wednesday seminar series in 2004, the Centre has hosted academicians from Indian and foreign universities as well as researchers and practitioners from across the world. The seminar series also presents a forum for presentations by the faculty and research scholars of the Centre, who share their research and benefit from the collective inputs of a wider audience.
