Social media has played a major role in every walk of life, be it business or social relationships. The supply chain management however, has remained aloof towards it. This article talks about the role, benefits and future of social media in supply chain and procurement services in India.
Social media is only considered as a means for socializing. Majority of the companies in India have banned Facebook, Twitter and other such social media platforms because they are said to hamper the productivity of the employees. This is, definitely is a matter of debate. However, social media does benefit your business, even if it is supply chain.

Weeds and Viruses: Ecopoetics after Postmodernism - Edited Book Collection

The beginning of the new millennium is often seen as the end of postmodernism. The recent emergence of Critical Realism and New Empiricim suggests a move towards forms of epistemological and moral pragmatisms that contain the disruption and destabilisation of identities within gestures of hyper-emotionality. Yet as far back as the early nineteenth century, Romantic writers had already begun to revision the Judeo-Christian belief in the dominance of man over the world around him or her. Writers such as John Clare, Dorothy Wordsworth and P.B. Shelley can be seen to destabilise the anthropocentric bias inherent to the belief in a transcendent, divinely-sanctioned human spirit.

Have you tied the knot yet? Or are you still playing the field? Are you a committed feminist, poststructuralist, or ecocritic? Or do you pick up a critical perspective for one project and then using another for the next? Do you still fondly cling to your first love of close reading?
