Title Review

The volume explores socialism, cyberspace and university as three themes, presenting the study through ‘open spaces’ of conversation, interactions and debate. It links socialism to women’s rights and freedom and argues that socialism is both necessary and desirable. It discusses the relevance and promise of cyberspace and the position of knowledge sharing in the world context. It takes up the culture of closedness in universities, critical engagement and creating open spaces in universities. It involves inquiring into issues like a capitalist world order, identity and rights and need for exchange of ideas among cultures.
