The Forum on Contemporary Theory is a non-profit organization devoted to inter-disciplinary dialogue on a broad range of topics of conceptual nature having contemporary relevance.  It is registered as a public trust and society in Baroda (Gujarat, India) and is governed by a Board of Trust comprising some distinguished scholars from Baroda. In 1989, it started as an informal institution in the Faculty of Arts of the Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda. It has now acquired global visibility through its academic programs and publications.  The Forum has established a research centre, Center for Contemporary Theory from the Ford Foundation grant. The center has a library devoted to Theory in Humanities and Social Sciences, and other allied disciplines to enable interdisciplinary research. The membership of the forum is spread across the globe. The forum provides temporary student membership, temporary non-student membership, life membership, and corporate membership. The center organizes an annual international conference, a national workshop, a month long Theory-Praxis course, and occasional talks by visiting scholars. It also publishes a biannual journal by name Journal of Contemporary Thought, a biannual newsletter, and a conference volume once a year.  The Forum has academic collaboration with the International Lincoln Center at the Louisiana State University, Shreveport, USA and University of North Texas at Denton, USA.
