National Institute of Technology Silchar with generous support form the MHRD is organizing a Global Initiative of Academic Networks (GIAN) course titled: Religion, Ideologies & Nationalism in South Asia, during 23-28 October 2017.

The importance of religion in the public sphere is exceedingly being felt. Nations as ‘imagined communities’ speak to the profound need for both legitimacy and belonging(ness), often articulated through one’s religious vis-a-vis ethnic identities in the modern world. This course will address this issue by focusing on the relationships between religion, geo-politics and the emergence and proliferation of nationalism. To illustrate the complexity and richness of the topic, this course will touch upon a diverse range of themes – proselytization, Orientalism, nationalist historiography, cartography, scientization, secularism, the Partition, multiculturalism, caste, gender, postcoloniality etc. — in the context of South Asia.

Ishita Banerjee-Dube, Professor of History at the Center for Asian and African Studies, El Colegio de México, will teach the course. We look forward to your participation. Complete course details including registration information and the course outline is available here: https://goo.gl/93SDvU. Please share this call with relevant individuals, organizations, and networks. Thanks.

International Conference on Future of Libraries: From Promises to Practice

Dear Professional Friends,

I am glad to inform you that  International Conference on Future of Libraries from Promises to Practices (ICFL)is being organized by DRTC, Indian Statistical Institute
in association with The College of Communication and Information, Florida State university, Florida USA


Library and Information Science Society for Asia and the Pacific (LISSASPAC)

15-17 November 2017  in the Platinum Jubilee Auditorium, Indian

Statistical Institute, Bangalore, India.

For more details visit http: https://sites.google.com/site/icflfpp2017/home

For better or worse, libraries are part of the fabric of society. They

cannot survive and thrive as alien bodies or, to use the language of

systems theory, as closed systems with impermeable boundaries. The mission

of academic libraries is to support research, education, and scholarship.

Historically, libraries have supported this mission by organizing and

providing access to information, special collections, and creating

physical spaces for collaboration and scholarship. While the broad mission

of academic libraries is largely unchanged, transformations in technology,

media, and culture are driving fundamental changes in the production and

consumption of information and the practice of scholarship. As a result,

academic libraries are rethinking their strategies and services to meet

the challenges of the digital world and the demands of the ?born digital?

generation. Libraries, in particular, are confronting these challenges as

the nature of scientific practice is being dramatically transformed by

information technologies.

Promises and Challenges for Libraries

The promises include the following: the potential for new scientific

discoveries that are possible only through large-scale, computational

analyses; a new era of transparency and replicability in scientific

methods and results; and the potential for widespread democratization of

scientific research, given the increasing ubiquity of open access data

sources and protocols. However, hidden in these examples are several

challenges for universities and their libraries. Libraries are

increasingly being asked to play a leadership role in helping universities

capture and organize their intellectual assets, such as faculty

publications, student dissertations, project reports, and scientific data

sets. To understand how libraries will change by the mid-21st century,

people need to understand what function they currently serve. At their

core, libraries in the information age provide a public means of accessing

knowledge. The hallmark of future libraries, meanwhile, will be

hyper-connectivity. They’ll reflect our increasing reliance on social

media, streaming content, and open-source data. The objective of the

conference is to create a platform for exchange ideas of the library

community related to current trends. Therefore, this conference will keep

you updated and make it stimulating and enlightening experience.

Call for Papers:

General areas of interests include, but are not limited to, the following


Knowledge Management/ Information Management
