At the outset, Sonapur College Principal Dr Devabrot Khanikor welcomed the guests and participants.

The keynote speech was delivered by Dr Rabindranath Sarma, Associate Professor and Head, Department of Tribal Studies, and Dean, School for the Study of Culture and School of Humanities and Social Sciences, Central University of Jharkhand.

He threw light on different aspects of the topic and its relevance in the present- day context. His speech highlighted the remarkable ethnicity of the greater Dimoria locality and the need for promoting tribal studies.

Dr Westerman in his address stressed the need for reframing museums to produce radical listeners and experienced viewers to highlight centring and amplifying voices.

Pedagogical approach to museums can solve many questions that challenge both traditional belief systems and the issues of science, said Dr Westerman. In the time of pandemics, collaborating with grassroot communities and scholars through pedagogical practice is of vital importance, he said.
