Indian Institute of Banking & Financel
MACRO Research Proposals for the year 2014-15

Indian Institute of Banking & Finance (Estd: 1928) is working with a mission "to develop professionally qualified competent bankers and finance professionals primarily through a process of education, training, examination, consultancy/counselling and continuing professional development programmes. One of the objectives of the Institute is to promote research relating to Operations, Products, Instruments, Processes, etc. in Banking and Finance and to encourage innovation and creativity among finance professionals. With this in view, in 2003 the Institute had started to fund research studies on selected areas in banking and finance, known as 'Macro Research', the term macro suggesting the scope of the research and to distinguish it from the other research initiative of the Institute namely the 'Micro Research'. Under the Macro Research scheme, the Institute invites proposals from research scholars from universities, colleges and banks to take up research in identified areas.

Topics for Macro Research:

The Institute encourages empirical research in which the researchers can test their hypothesis through data (primary/secondary) from which lessons can be drawn for the industry (banking & finance) as a whole. In this regard, the Institute invites Macro Research Proposals for year 2014-15.

Rethinking Priority Sector-(inviting new perspectives including international experiences)
New perspectives on Banking regulations(state of preparedness of Indian Banking in the light of emerging regulations)
Indicator approach to corporate distress - wilful default
Exchange rate management-impact on  corporates and banks
Organisational restructuring in banks including talent management issues
Impact of the technology in banking paradigm including global perspectives
Who can participate?

Teams sponsored/identified by research organizations/institutes, as well as individuals (with a Ph.D. degree) affiliated to research organizations/institutions/banks having a proven track record, are eligible to apply. The winners of the macro research award during the last two years (2012-13 and 2013-14) are not eligible to apply for the research award. If the research is undertaken by individuals, the proposal should be routed through their organizations after taking requisite permission, wherever applicable.
Research Proposal:

The Research Proposal/s submitted should, among others, focus on the research objective/s, hypothesis, research design, methodology and execution plan of the proposed project.

Evaluation:

Research proposals will be evaluated in terms of objective, relevance and methodology. The track record of the research organizations/researchers submitting the proposal is also taken into account for awarding the research. All the research proposals will be prima facie considered for suitability and final selection will be made after the short listed researchers make a presentation to the members of the Research Advisory Committee (RAC) of the Institute.

Research Grant:

The selected research project carries a cash award of Rs.2,50,000/- (Rupees two lakh and fifty thousand only). On commencement of the project a part (25%) of the award money will be given by way of advance as per the request of the researcher. The balance will be disbursed only on acceptance of the final report. In case a report is found unacceptable during the midterm review and final review, the research organization / researcher will not be paid the balance amount. In case a research organization/researcher abandons the project mid way, they would be required to refund the advance availed together with interest at the prevailing Base Rate of the State Bank of India (SBI).

Size of research report:

Around 200-250 pages

Time frame:

After completing the research work, the final research report should be submitted within a maximum period of six months from the time the project is awarded.

Call for Papers:Redefining Labour Roles in a Globalizing India

Open Call for Papers: Redefining Labour Roles in a Globalizing India

Key Theme: Labour anomalies and contradictions of a growing economy.

Date:  October 2015

Venue: New Delhi, India

Abstract Submission: 200-500 words (with author's name and full affiliation) to be submitted by January 1st 2015 to Shalini Grover: drshalinigrover@yahoo.co.uk

Organizers:

Arup Mitra (Institute of Economic Growth)

Shalini Grover (Institute of Economic Growth and Edinburgh University)

Patricia Jeffery (Edinburgh University)

Tom Chambers (Sussex University)

          


This conference will probe how labour roles are being redefined in a globalizing India. While there has been much emphasis on India's 'emerging work and entrepreneurial cultures' our interest pertains to labour 'anomalies' and 'contradictions' that have gone unnoticed in the anthropological corpus, as well as in national macro trends. We perceive labour roles and relations to be a wide field in India, where transformations in the informal and formal sectors may be antithetical to notions of 'progressive' social development 1) Our focus lies in foregrounding features such as 'sliding down the labour hierarchy' (e.g. reduced status or social position) as a matter of individual choice or necessity. For example, following the publication of the 2004-5, National Sample Survey Data (NSSO), the domestic service sector has prompted a provocative debate on the female labour force participation and existing labour laws. Domestic work is currently one of the largest growing sectors for female employment in India. This low-status and stigmatized occupation is diversifying into specialized markets such as 'care work', 'nursing,' etc. The labour market is supported by training institutes, NGOs, and entrepreneurs who encourage skill enhancement. How do modern domestic workers (simultaneously labeled as 'servants') perceive their new subjectivities in a transmuting labour market? 2) Furthermore, paradigms that problematize labour roles beyond 'normative exploitation' and 'gender hierarchy' will add substance to our analysis. Informal sector jobs allied with feudal dependency and exploitation need re-visiting in light of men and women exercising newly available options and enacting aspirations in the contemporary liberalizing moment. Similarly, sectors such as IT (information technology) are associated with youth and sexual liberation, while women's entry (or incorporation) into male dominated family owned business is normally conceptualized as a conservative step. 3) Of significance, is whether cohorts of workers have moved to other occupations or adopted new identities such as from hereditary to non-hereditary fields. We seek explorations on forms of resistance in relation to identity and everyday labour, especially amongst subaltern groups, minorities, and the lowest castes. 4) Another area is subcontracting practices between the formal and the informal sector. In the recent years some evidence suggests that large scale subcontracting from the formal sector has introduced quality control in the informal sector which in turn has encouraged entrepreneurs in the informal sector to employ workers on regular terms - 'regularity in the irregular sector.' Whether this has led to improvement in work conditions is a question that needs to be examined. 5) Papers should preferable be based on detailed ethnography, work-life histories, narratives, biographies, multi-disciplinary analytical connections, and historical analysis. 6) We invite a diversity of ideas (e.g. contexts of migration, globalization, diaspora), and are open to queries from contributors.'

Potential Funders:

We are in the process of applying for funds and the potential institutions are the Indian Council of Social Science Research, ESRC, British Academy, International Labour Organization (ILO), and our respective universities.

Publication Goal:

A special issue in an international journal and an edited volume.

Tom Chambers:

Tom Chambers has recently completed an ESRC funded PhD in Social Anthropology at the University of Sussex, where he is currently employed as an associate tutor.  His research focuses on a Muslim craft community in North India and considers questions around labour, religion, culture, identity and migration.  His work utilises 'informality', not just to understand labour and conditions of employment, but also networks, connections, niches and spaces of production and exchange. In so doing he is interested in how Islam interacts with economy, how supply chains act to incorporate local economic and cultural structures, and how identity based networks have interacted with structural factors to shape migrant pathways within India and to the Arabian Gulf.

Millenarianism and Surviving the Destruction of Humanity The Apocalypse Project

Millenarianism and Surviving the Destruction of Humanity
The Apocalypse Project: 4th Global Meeting

Saturday 2nd May - Monday 4th May 2015
Dubrovnik, Croatia

Call for Presentations:
From the Christian concept of the 'Apocalypse' to the Hindu notions of the Kali Yuga, visions of destruction and fantasies of the 'end times' have a long history. In the last few years, public media, especially in the West, have been suffused with images of the end times, or even the end of humanity, and afterward, from the zombie apocalypse (the AMC series The Walking Dead) to life after the collapse of civilization (the NBC series Revolution.) Several popular television series and video games (Deep Earth Bunker) are now based on preparing for and surviving the end of the world. Once a fringe activity, 'survivalism' has gone mainstream, and a growing industry supplies 'doomsday preppers' with all they need to survive the post-apocalyptic chaos. One purpose of the conference is to explore these ideas by situating them in context - for example, psychological, historical, literary, cultural, political, and economic. The second aim of the conference is to examine today's widespread fascination with apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic thought, and to understand its rising appeal across broad sections of contemporary society around the world, and with this to determine the practical implications of an apocalypse, together with ideas on how to disseminate and use the information gained during this meeting. To this end, it is proposed that for the coming year presentations should focus more on the practical rather than theoretical aspects of apocalypse. In so doing it is hoped that as a group we can find answers to questions such as: Why do the apocalypse and other aspects of millenarianism matter? What is at stake if apocalyptic/millenarian visions are embraced or discredited? What strategies can avoid the destruction of humanity envisaged in apocalyptic visions? What are the consequences of ignoring them?

With this in mind, proposals for presentations, papers, performances, reports, work-in-progress, workshops and pre-formed panels are invited on issues related to (but not limited to) the following themes:

-Decline, Collapse, Decay,
-Survivalism and Doomsday Preppers
-Revolution
-Theories of Social Change
-Peak Oil, Resource Depletion, Global Warming, Economic Collapse
-Environmental Destruction: climate change, resource depletion, drought, deforestation, air and water pollution, etc.
-Disease - Ebola, SARS etc., Mass Death
-Sex and Gender at the End of Time
-Ironic and/or Anti-Apocalyptic Thinking
-Utopia and Dystopia
-Intentional Communities as Communities of the End Times
-Selling the Apocalypse, Commodifying Disaster, and Marketing the End Times
-Death Tourism and Disaster Capitalism
-The Age of Terror
-Disaster Fiction/Movies/Video Games
-History as Apocalypse
-Remembering and Reliving the Collapse of the Western Roman Empire
-Post-Apocalyptic conditions
-Positive aspects of an Apocalypse, including change and transformation.
-Visions of a world without/beyond humanity

This interdisciplinary project welcomes proposals from all disciplines and research areas, including anthropology, psychoanalysis, political economy, psychology, area studies, communal studies, environmental studies, history, sociology, religion, theology, gender studies, the Arts, biology, chemistry, physics, computer studies, and consumer studies. Subsequently we encourage submission of proposals for short workshops, practitioner-based activities, best practice showcases, how-to sessions, live demonstrations, performances, and pre-formed panels. We particularly welcome short film screenings; photographic essays; installations; interactive talks and alternative presentation styles that encourage engagement.

What to send:
