0200 HISTORY

Indian Social Science Academy (originally, Indian Academy of Social Sciences ) was established on August 15, 1974 with its headquarters at Allahabad with a view to creating new science of Nature-Human-Society in India capable of creating new democratic Republic of India free from hunger, disease, ignorance, discrimination , oppression of man by man. Two years later it began organizing National Science Congress. It named it Indian Social Science Congress. First Indian Social Science Congress was held from February 15 to 17, 1976 at Allahabad. Since then it has been held at different universities, details of which are given on p 53. The 40th session of the Indian Social Science Congress was held from December 19-23, 2016 at University of Mysore, Mysuru and the 41st session of it was held from Dec 18 to 22, 2017 at Periyar University, Salem. The 42nd Indian Social Science Congress was held from December 27 to 31, 2018 at Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology, Bhubaneswar. Each ISSC has a focal theme, details of which are given on p 53.

All subjects/disciplines of science of Nature-Humans-Society are represented in Indian Social Science Congress. There are 28 Research Committees and 21 Interdisciplinary Thematic Panels in it.

Word Science in Indian Social Science Congress is prefixed with social as it is the result of collective mental and physical labour. It is without any boundary and, is indivisible. Indian Social Science Congress, therefore, is ,indeed, science congress in true sense.

University Grants Commission recognizes Indian Social Science Congress on par with Indian Science Congress with distinction of having great potentiality for development of new indigenous science and technology needed for self-reliant national development. Every session of Indian Social Science Congress has a focal theme.
