The Sociology Department is proud to present the yearly postgraduate conference - organised by our postgraduates for postgraduates in social science and humanities. Anais Duong-Pedica and Valdimir Rizov have organised the event and
focused it uponexploring the variety and richness of the notion of myth. It seeks to create a space where a multitude of disciplines, perspectives, and methods could be discussed critically. The ambivalence and the ambiguity of 'myth' is intentional. Myth is wide and varied - it can be a problematic social construction; it can be the process of creating meaning; it can even be the myth of meaning itself. Thus this conference plans to provide an opportunity for multi/interdisciplinary perspectives and their critical exploration.
