It has come to the Society's notice that some unscrupulous elements are collecting money for publishing papers in the Society's Journal and offering bogus certificates. The Asiatic Society does not collect money for publishing in its journal, nor does it guarantee publication, and neither does it issue any certificate. Authors must verify with the Society before submitting any papers, and papers will be published only after rigorous peer review. The Society does not take responsibility for any payments made to third parties claiming to represent the Society, or for their papers appearing in a cloned/spam journal.

The Literary Club of the Asiatic Society of Mumbai is delighted to invite you to a presentation of the works of the French Nobel prize winning author Annie Ernaux on Monday 5th December 2022 at 5 pm.
Annie Ernaux is the first French woman to win the prestigious Nobel Prize for Literature this year, succeeding fifteen Laureates from France, the country with the highest number of Nobel prizes for Literature.
To quote President of France Emmanuel Macron: “For the past fifty years, Annie Ernaux has been writing the novel of our country’s collective and intimate memory. Her voice is that of the liberation of women and the forgotten.”
This is an author who stands at the intersection of literature, sociology and history. She is known for the foregrounding of issues of gender, class and sexuality, raising questions about the place of a woman writer who is marginalised by her class origins as well as gender in contemporary Western cultures.
The presentation in English of her works will be led by three Francophone women members of the Asiatic Society, who have been teaching French Literature at the University of Mumbai to students at the Master’s level - Professor Mangala Sirdeshpande Hon. Secretary, Meenal Kshirsagar Vice President of the Society and Professor Vidya Vencatesan Head, Department of French.
All are invited to this presentation which will be followed by a discussion. We welcome insights and questions from the participants.
Tea will be served at 4.30 pm.
