SSLA, as an institution, does not incentivize brilliance with awards, but rather with recognition and self-actualisation; and when awards, individual or collective, are a consequence of that, SSLA beams with pride. These displays of talent are encouraged and cultivated in the space through an elaborate process of exposure, engagement and learning. For us, empowerment does not simply exist as a theoretical motto - it is the foundational basis of our pedagogy.
These prodigious personalities who represent the larger missions of the college, are so many in number, that we must enlist and applaud them in such pages. Their effort and achievement surely transcends any such representation and the campus echoes their legacies proudly.
These distinguished names belong, and proudly so, in a long upheld tradition of "standing out" that encompasses every student of the college.
Presenting to you, the victorious icons of SSLA.
Symbiosis School for Liberal Arts was founded in 2011 and is the only liberal arts education program in India which offers a comprehensive four year degree program.
Notably, Symbiosis School for Liberal Arts offers specializations which focus on intersectionality like Women and Gender Studies, also Peace and Conflict Studies.
The International Women’s Conference hosted by SSLA on 1st & 2nd March 2019, will create a platform for an active interaction of academia, the corporate sector, community based organizations, researchers, and the development sector. This interaction would lead to understanding the lives and issues of urban middle-class women. The conference will begin with a Public Lecture, co-hosted by Sage Publications by an Eminent Personality in this field on the 28thFebruary 2019.
To ensure a holistic discussion, the conference has four tracks- Women and Citizenship, Women and Healthcare, Women of Eminence and Women and Work.
This discussion would empower women and create an ecosystem which allows them to thrive and become key decision makers, right across family, employment and policy.
The need to talk for women and about women has been a major feminist construct for the past few years. While a patriarchal society has dictated everything that a woman should do, including the terms of her capability for too long a time, the direction has gradually shifted. Women are slowly gaining momentum and are taking up positions as equals to men in society. Yet, women have a long way to go for constructive conversations about themselves. It is for all this we stand today.
At SSLA the discussion on various societal issues is not constrained to the classroom. It’s a part of every general conversation that happens on the campus. Gender is one such social construct and a woman’s place within it has been a topic of importance for several years now. Women and Gender Studies is not just a subject for the faculty and students, it is a critique of the strain imposed by the patriarchal society on a woman’s identity. The idea is not to just write a critical analysis of the issue, but to seek solutions that extend outside the textual framework. This conference is a concrete step to finding a resolution to the multitude of constraints.
A peek into the real world will emerge from diversity in speakers and audience from all cultures from various streams of life. This will provide our audience with different perspectives and allow for actionable changes.
We seek to gain a fundamental understanding of the middle- class woman and the social, economic and cultural changes that she is subjugated to. Effective conversations will go a long way in finding solutions for the problems that arise with an urban lifestyle. It is a step towards mapping the growth of a woman who is educated and upwardly mobile, while initiating more women into this category. More than anything, it is respecting women who have balanced patriarchy-dictated social traditions and 21st century modernity and succeeded at it.
This is a concept that has recently gained acceptance in India. It is our concern to understand and eradicate the problems that arise with this phenomenal change in gender roles. The conference offers educated conversations with communities that influence and are being influenced by this change. An exchange of experiences, success stories and struggles will prove to be an inspiration for the many, still writing their stories out there.
The conference is about spreading awareness, and stimulating scientific enquiry.We endeavour to have empowering dialogues, focused on a solution based approach both academically and philosophically. We seek to have a long lasting impact towards social change.
