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.

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.

Call for Proposals
Recent attacks on Chican@ and Ethnic Studies programs are reminders of the need for spaces to produce knowledge in, about, and for our communities. This conference provides an environment to encounter and engage recent work by those who situate their teaching, research, writing, creative activities, and advocacy on and beyond an academic campus. This call for proposals centers on the ways in which academic research, creative activities, pedagogy, and activism can directly affect and become embedded in these communities.
