Presently, the entire world is reeling under the pressure of COVID-19. The numbers are surging by the day, making it more challenging for all sectors across the world survive, sustain and grow. Nevertheless, humanity and its essence are invincible and carry far more courage to come over all the odds. People across the globe have come up with innovative strategies, systems, technologies, products, amenities and beyond to tackle the pandemic, and get used to the ‘New Normal.’
Amity has also emerged stronger amidst this Corona crisis and took several creative initiatives, CSR activities, and continued education & learning through virtual platforms. Unfolding the facts associated with Corona pandemic, beyond technology & bio-sciences, experts suggest that history and literature in particular, offer important insights to communities for dealing with the trauma and overcoming such pandemics, developing human cognition and potentials, and reshaping the societies.
When people study Literature in various forms, they learn to appreciate words and their power. They understand about their own culture and others. They learn to empathise with characters, to feel their joys and pain. Importantly, they learn to consider multiple perspectives and understand the complexity of human nature. I am extremely delighted to share that the second edition of Amity International Literature Festival (AIFL), a unique initiative of Amity University students, is being organised in the online mode from October 15 - 17, 2020 with an objective to empower association among students and professionals from over the globe and to share their philosophies and knowledge by participating in different competitions, panel discussions, and workshops.
AILF 2020 aims to develop critical and creative thinking skills and encourage participants to draw links between global and local issues. These are essential in the 21st century, as increasingly more jobs are obsoleting by the development of artificial intelligence. Those who wish to remain relevant would be the ones who can accomplish what machine thinking cannot, and Literature develops just such skills.
My best wishes to all the participants from across the globe for an extraordinary learning experience. Explore all possibilities and your unconscious competence!
I am sure that the hard work and commitment of the organizing committee members will make AILF 2020 a glorious success
