DAYA Rehabilitation Trust launched a platform for Young Scholars to engage in academic conversations about our various humanitarian initiatives; the Thanal Young Scholars’ Colloquy. The platform is intended for scholars, in the early stages of their research career, viz., those who are in the final stages of their doctoral research work, have already submitted their thesis, or who have been awarded a PhD in the past five years, to present their work and engage in conversations with peers and other academicians/ professionals working in related areas. Such a platform is expected to help young researchers get to know about initiatives being conducted in and around Kerala, discuss about our initiatives and those of others in wider circles and to engage in further research and collaborative works. This initiative was born out of the recognition of the limited reach and awareness in the various facets of the Kerala- Malabar region’s health,welfare,e and development scenario, and the absence of such a space for regular interaction among young researchers. The colloquy is held once a quarter on a virtual platform.
The duration of the program will be around 60 to 75 minutes, and the format of the programme is as follows:
Introduction of the topic and speaker by the moderator
- Presentation by the speaker (Around 30 minutes)
- Discussion and interaction with the speaker (Around 30 minutes) – The discussion is intended to be an insightful one into the domain and the area of research, as presented by the speaker. It is expected that future areas for research, methodologies to be adopted, challenges in the particular domain, etc. will be brought forth which will be beneficial for all the participants. The discussion, which will be moderated, is expected to be constructive, even when critical.
- Ending remarks by the moderator
