National Seminar on Contemporary Social Science Practice in Nepal

Flyer MishraAs historical products, modern social science disciplines emerged within a broadly specific world context of the latter half of the 19th century. Inevitably, political and economic transitions since then have reshaped social sciences in major ways, including by generating new disciplines, delegitimizing several others, and producing distinctive “hybrid” disciplines—some of which fully taken shape as full-fledged disciplines for long—in several other instances. In addition, regional, national and, in some instances, local contexts have distinctively shaped the theory and practice as well as teaching and research of social sciences. Advances in social sciences, as in all other “sectors,” have also been highly uneven across the regions, countries and localities.    Continue reading →

समाज विज्ञानमा नयाँ विषयवस्तु र नयाँ पुस्ता

हरि बहादुर भुजेल (विभास) (24)hari_bhujel

( प्रस्तुत लेख आगामी ‘समाज विज्ञानमा नयाँ पुस्ता प्राज्ञिक गैरसरकारी संस्थाको भूमिका’ नामक लेख अध्ययन गरि सके पछि छलफलकको लागि मात्र लेखिएको हो । यसले सोमबार हुने प्रत्यूष वन्तको लेक्चर सेरिजलाई थप उपलब्धीमूलक बनाउन मद्दत गर्ने आशा गर्दछु ।)

समाज विज्ञानको क्षेत्र ब्यापक छ । समाजको बदलिदो स्वरुप सँगै समाजविज्ञानका क्षेत्रहरु पनि ब्यापक विस्तारित भैरहेका छन् । समाजका विभिन्न अवयवहरुको यथार्थ तरिकाले उद्घाटन गर्नु आजको आवश्यकता बनिरहेको छ । यसै सन्दर्भमा अन्नुसन्धानकर्ता प्रत्यूष वन्तले समाज विज्ञानमा नयाँ पुस्ताको आगमनलाई सरलिकरण गर्ने काम गरेर सहज बनाइदिएका छन् ।

नयाँ पुस्ताले समाज विज्ञान के कसरी योगदान दिन सक्दछन् ? यसको लागि कस्तो वातावरण विध्यमान छ र अव के हुनु पर्छ? भन्ने विषयमा वन्तले दिएका सुझावहरु मनन योग्य छन् । यो लेख वन्तले उठाएको सबै बिषयप्रति पूर्ण सहमति जनाउदै उनले उठाउदा उठाउदै छायाँमा परेको महशुस भएका केहि विषय उठान गर्ने हेतुले लेखिएको हो । लेखमा उल्लेखित विषय वस्तु पूर्ण संशोधित वा प्रशोधित नभइ एक नयाँ समाज विज्ञानको विद्यार्थीको नाताले उठाइएका नितान्त आनुभाविक हुन् । जसले थप छलफल र विश्लेषणको लागि ठाउँ पाउने अपेक्षा गरेको छु ।  Continue reading →
