A panel discussion with the theme, “Globalization and Emerging Countries” was held on 15 November 2010 as a part of Jawaharlal Nehru University Alumni Association Seminar Series. Participating in the panel discussion were the faculty members of the School of International Studies: Prof. Chintamani Mahapatra, Dr. H.S. Prabhakar and Prof. S.N. Malakar. The programme was chaired by Prof. Christopher S. Raj of the Center for American Studies, now the Dean, SIS and concluding remarks were delivered by Prof. K.P. Vijyalaxmi.
Globalization process unleashed liberally capital, technology and labor beyond national borders. The process helped consolidation of corporate financial assets and wealth at their respective corporate headquarters, be it American, European or Japanese. Economic liberalization in China and India also resulted in deregulation greatly. Transfer of technology, including military technology, resulted in prosperity in many developing countries, though prosperity per say was confined to urban centers. Impact of the process of globalization on business was positive and impact on agriculture and rural economy was negative. Positive impact improved the national image and GDP of both China and India whereas negative impact on agriculture impacted on food security. Result was food insecurity in a sense.
Security and defense related implications of globalization, advancing American influence on Asia Pacific Region, including India and China, were in detail explained by Prof. Chintamani Mahapatra whereas Prof. S. N. Malakar explained the inner details of political and social impact of globalization as relating to African Continent with specific reference to a few countries. Similarly, globalization and situations in East Asian Countries as dominated by Japan and China were narrated by Dr. H.S. Prabhakar with specific reference to technology transfer, industrialization, business expansions and export led growth resulting in race for political space as reflected in ASEAN and East Asian Community.
Prof. K.P. Vijyalaxmi while concluding the panel discussion mentioned that such a broad theme as 'Globalization' needs to be continuously discussed.

Panel discussion on "Science, Technology & Education"
A Panel discussion with the theme, "Science, Technology & Education" was held on 16 November 2010 as a part of Jawaharlal Nehru University Alumni Association Seminar Series. The programme was chaired by Prof. Neera Bhalla Sarin, School of Life Sciences and the lectures were delivered by Dr. Narender Singh Yadav, Biochemical Sciences and Engineering, CR&D, Du Pont, Wilmington and Dr. Jatinder Peters, Director, GM (HR) and Head Coordination, ONGC, New Delhi.
The focus of the talk delivered by Dr. N.S. Yadav was about the results of “Genetic Engineering of Yeast to Produce Heart-Healthy Mega three Oil” which has resulted into several new products with great health benefits. As the human system does not have the capacity to produce some of the acids in sufficient amount, they must be supplied in our diets. The current major source of omega-3 fatty acid is fish oil. Concerns over the quality and sustainability of the fish oil supply have generated interest in alternative sources for them. According to Dr. Yadav a clean and sustainable source of omega-3 fatty acid has been identified using a omega fatty oil engineered strain of the oleaginous yeast – Yarrowia lipolytica. The presentation of Prof. Yadav generated a number of questions from the audience. Prof. Yadav in his response acknowledged the contribution of learning at JNU in his M.Phil. days in his academic journey which includes more than 40 patents so far.
The topic of the talk of Dr. Jitender Peters was related with her change of career after higher studies in Life Sciences in JNU. According to her she became interested in the system organizational human resource development after a few years as Life Scientist and decided to pursue specialization in organizational management and human relations in complex organizations. She found much support from her science background in evolving into an expert of social scientific theories and practices which got her the responsibility of becoming Director of Human Resource Development Programme of one of the Navaratna companies of India. She was happy that the JNU educational culture enabled her to have a wide awareness and interest beyond her dissertation topic.
This was attended by faculty members and research scholars of JNU.
Prof. Anand Kumar thanked the speakers, Chair and the audience on behalf of AAJ.

Lecture on "Problems of Translation and Discourse Analysis"
Centre for Linguistics organised three lectures by H.S. Gill, Professor Emeritus, JNU, in November, 2010. The title of the series of lectures was: 'Problems of Translation and Discourse Analysis.'
In the first of the lectures Professor Gill, presented his theoretical framework for analyzing literary discourses. According to him, the linear 'text' – of literature, painting or music – is only the perceptually available and surface manifestation of a more complex 'discourse' that is immanent and perceptually non-manifest. It is at this latter level, the tensions and 'contradictions' between an author's (or readers') inner intellectual and emotional dispositions and the linear and discrete order of the form of the text come into play. These tensions and contradictions, as far as the individuals involved in the creative process are concerned, may be conscious or unconscious. As a result of these tensions, even when an author's text is filled with words, phrases and sentences, or colours, lines or sounds, depending on the specific artistic medium, the immanent and invisible discourse would be at variance with what is the overtly articulated. The immanent discourse, in this manner, may remain secret, hidden or undisclosed, and it becomes the task of the reader, critic or the analyst to work through what is inadequately manifest, and constitute the 'author's' discourse in his or her own terms. Professor Gill compared this process with what happens in the context of a game of chess, where one is not able to determine from the surface moves what exactly is going on at the level of the immanent discourse that remains invisible in it. This can be interpreted only by an expert in the game of chess, who can be thus compared to a competent reader or analyst of literature or art.
In the second lecture, Gill presented the philosophical basis of the semiotics of the creative process that he developed during his long career of teaching and research. He referred to the works of several French philosophers including Michel Foucault, Jean-Paul Sartre, Maurice Merleau-Ponty, Etienne de Condillac, and more importantly the 12th century theologian-philosopher Pierre Abélard. The creative process in language, literature and art, according to Gill, moves from the given word to the concept and then back to the word that is expressed in the text. The 'concept' in this sense is nothing but the singular 'idea' which is pecific to the author situated in his or her context, and is not generalisable. Thus every creative text is the manifestation of some existential experience that is specific to an individual. In the process of reading a text this process is somewhat repeated, and therefore the reader's meaning is also the result of an interaction between the text and the specific existential experience of the reader himself. That is why there can never be a general reading a text. That is also why, once a text is published, the author can be more or less ignored, and the author can never really understand his her own text.
But, at the same time, Gill's third lecture reminded the audience, one cannot totally reduce or ignore the author's existential meaning that is immanently present amidst the contradictory drives that preceded the construction of the text. Thus, a translation cannot afford to be insensitive towards the choice of specific words, and the specific organization of a text, both of which are existentially charged. The task of the translator is not to transfer the factual meaning of the linguistic or formal elements in one language to the words that convey the very same factual meaning. It is to be sensitive to to the existential 'charge' that these formal and linguistic elements carry in one language and present it faithfully to the readers in another language. Referring in detail to a well-known English translation of the French writer Flaubert's work on Saint Julien, Gill observed that it is inappropriate to reduce the tensions and contradictions (in relation to characters and their relations) that words carry in this author's original text to words merely carrying superficial information. Translation ofl creative works involve being sensitive to the existentially charged meanings and context that pervades in a specific work, and thus being able to convey the meaning of that non-manfiest immanent plane to the readers in another language. Such creativity in the translation process would always be foreign to translation by machines.
The series of lectures concluded with Dr. Saugata Bhaduri of Centre for English Studies proposing a vote of thanks to Professor Gill and to colleagues and students of the university who participated.

Lecture on "European Systems of Innovation"
Dr. Georgi Dimitrov, Policy Officer at the European Institute of Innovation and Technology, delivered a comprehensive and analytical lecture on "European Systems of Innovation" at Centre for Studies in Science Policy, SSS, JNU on 3 December 2010. Dr. Dimitrov came to India for the first time to deliver a lecture in the 13th TCI Annual Global Conference on Competitiveness, Innovative Clusters and Prosperity, held at MDI Gurgaon during 29 November to 3 December 2010. During this visit, he agreed to interact with JNU faculty and research scholars to discuss India's participation in the global innovation hotspots.
In his lecture at JNU, Dr. Dimitrov highlighted the genesis of newly launched European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIIT), which aims to become a flagship institution for promoting excellence in European innovation. The EIIT was established by the European Parliament and the Council on 11 March 2008 for nurturing excellence in innovation in each member state of the European Union (EU). EIIT became operational at the end of 2009.
Dr. Dimitrov also added that EU member countries have different levels of innovation capability and institutional framework. EIIT aims to strengthen both innovation capability and institutional capacity of each member country. Thus, EIIT strategically helps in designing new models for innovation, collaboration and funding of innovation. EIIT emphasises on integrating three sides of the 'Knowledge Triangle' encompassing higher education, research and business-innovation. To integrate this knowledge triangle, EIIT puts in place a few results-driven instruments such as the Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs). EIIT has already established three thematic KICs to address common societal challenges, namely, Climate-KIC (climate change mitigation and adaptation), KIC InnoEnergy (sustainable energy) and EIIT ICT Labs (the future of the information and communication society). These KICs are designed to bring highly integrated and excellence-driven autonomous partnerships, which are internationally distributed but thematically convergent. Each KIC will be strategically co-located around a geographical location where all or large part of the innovation chain can be found in close proximity working together across the innovation chain. KIC outcomes to be measured in terms of (i) new business creation; (ii) education and development of entrepreneurial people; (iii) new governance models for innovation-driven collaboration; and (iv) improvements in curricular and learning and teaching methods. In this way the 'knowledge triangle' becomes a strong inter-dependent entity for each KIC, enriching each other's knowledge base.
Dr. Dimitrov pointed out that each thematic KIC identifies and builds up world class innovation hotspots. For example, EIIT- ICT Labs initially establishes world class innovation hotspots in Berlin, Eindhoven, Helsinki and Stockholm. This KIC also establishes associate clusters in Budapest, London and Trento. Each co-location of a KIC hotspot features at least: one strong research institute, one major university, one European-based multinational company, active regional network of SME, and full national and regional support.
Dr. Dimitrov also mentioned that each KIC is very keen to establish linkages with excellent institutions and innovative companies from emerging countries (particularly from India), if they bring added value to the KIC.
