Call For Papers

Bhatter College Journal of Multidisciplinary Studies
Call for Papers for Volume IV, 2014

The theme: “Interdisciplinary Approaches to Water”

We are inviting articles and book reviews on “Interdisciplinary Approaches to Water” for the Vol. IV of the journal. We have selected the area in order to explore many forms of complex issues—geological, historical, philosophical, commercial/economic, anthropological, ethical, metaphysical, religious, artistic, biological, medical, sociological, psychological etc. associated with water. In spite of large body of literature on the area, we feel that the area still merits attention and discussion in the face of the loss of memory of the importance of water (when water is just a commoditified thing), corporatization of natural resources, pollution of water engineered through industrial economy, exploitation of underground water reserve for agriculture, apathy towards preserving and utilizing rain-water, unnatural activities on the river systems like dams etc and many more. In other words, we want to approach the area from holistic multidisciplinary manner and so we invite papers from any discipline and we encourage authors to engage themselves in interdisciplinary discussions.
