Libraries as Transformative Spaces

A library is never just one thing. It’s a place of possibilities. It’s often a space that transforms into what you need it to be: a classroom, a cyber café, a place to find answers, a quiet spot to be alone. It sits not just at the heart of a college or a university but also of communities and cities.



Call for Papers

Urbanisation is a peer-reviewed journal that aims to publish comparative and collaborative scholarship illuminating the global urban condition beginning with a firm footprint in the Global South. Anchored by IIHS, Urbanisation is published biannually by SAGE Publications India.


The launch of Amlanjyoti Goswami’s new book, Vital Signs, presents an opportunity for meaningful conversation around poetry and its intersections with life.
