The Academic Writing Lab is an important constituent of IIIT Delhi and is housed in the writing lab within the Department of Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH). We regularly host seminars, public talks and research related events. We aim to address the educational needs which are likely to emerge in the future with the ever increasing convergence of Computer Science with social systems resulting in an increasing role for the social sciences and the humanities in technology and business solutions.

Academic Writing Lab is back with the second version of the annual AWL-SSH Symposium on the theme "Disruption and Its Discontents: Ethics, Politics, and Epistemology of Disruptive Technology." The current theme of the symposium builds upon the inaugural symposium on "Crisis of Truth: The digital era and the future of knowledge" held on 27- 28 August 2021. We insist on continuing our discussions along these lines, integrating newer threads of theories and concepts on the framework of digital technologies and society. We are accepting submissions for individual/group paper presentations, panel proposals and for our unique graduate student workshop. Selected papers from the symposium will then be invited to submit their final papers for consideration for publication in a major journal or with a reputed publisher. Some of the themes which will be covered in the symposium include, but are not limited to:

  • • Communication technologies toward freedom and democracy
  • • Epistemology of disruptive technology
  • • Artificial Intelligence as a challenge to ethics of work culture
  • • Idea of revolution in the digital age
  • • Discontent and the digital
  • • Digital and the question of Power
  • • Algorithmic knowledge and art of prediction
  • • Ethics of Digital identities
  • • Ethics of Digital Dissent
  • • Digital and the idea of the public
