International Conference on Fourth World Literature & Culture is organised by Higher Education and Research Society, a Navi Mumbai based Government Registered Educational Society. The conference renders a humble platform for deliberation upon the state policies and human endeavours to bridge the digital divide between the Fourth World and rest of the globe. It also problematizes the son-of-the-soil dynamics as one third of the ethnic civil wars could be labelled son-of-the-soil conflicts. The conference could rationalize reality of the ongoing marginalization of the Fourth World Nations by the imperial power under the banner of ‘modernization’, ‘progress’ and ‘development’. It intends to initiate the investigation that accounts for both the process of integration on global scale and the process of self-identification on the local indigenous level. The distinct literary representation of the indigenous people is quite rare. Rather, it becomes their appropriation in the fold of mainstream culture eliminating their uniqueness. The conference not only encourages but makes a strong plea for voicing the silenced ethnic marginal.
