Collective identities and ethnicity are subjects to changes in many parts of the world today as several scholars have highlighted. Through this conference, we wish to examine those changes, particularly the new forms and meaning given to ethnic identities, belonging, etc. today in various parts of Northeast India, as well as to practices related to ethnicity and cultural identities. "Northeast India" is the political unit defined by the Indian Government as the "North Eastern Council", which now includes Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Tripura and Sikkim.
