Blog Entry Pleasure and Pornography: Pornography and the Blindfolded Gaze of the Law
by Namita A. Malhotra published Apr 02, 2009 last modified Aug 02, 2011 08:37 AM — filed under: , , , , , , , , , ,
In the legal discourse, pornography as a category is absent, except as an aggravated form of obscenity. Does this missing descriptive category assist in the rampant circulation of pornography, either online or offline? Rather than ask that question, Namita Malhotra, in this second post documenting her CIS-RAW project, explores certain judgments that indeed deal with pornographic texts and uncovers the squeamishness that ensures that pornography as an object keeps disappearing before the law.

Blog Entry Privacy, pornography, sexuality (a video)
by Namita A. Malhotra published Dec 10, 2009 last modified Aug 02, 2011 08:37 AM — filed under: , , ,
The video is an attempt to use the material collected for purposes of provoking a discussion around privacy, pornography, sexuality and technology. It focuses largely on an Indian context, which most viewers would be familiar with. The video is pegged around the ban of Savita Bhabhi – a pornographic comic toon – but uses that to open up a discussion on various incidents and concepts in relation to pornography and privacy across Asia.

Blog Entry Analysis on the strategies of Mozilla and Wiki communities on gender gap aspects
by Bhuvana Meenakshi published Oct 03, 2019 last modified Oct 03, 2019 11:56 AM — filed under: , , ,
There is a need for research on how Open Source communities are trying to balance the gender ratio and how they provide the safe space environment to its contributors. With this in mind I have come up with this blog as I am an active contributor of Mozilla since 5 years and also got myself recently introduced to Wikimedia and its sister projects, have interacted with few Indian women contributors in both of these communities and came out with a few observations on how I see them in India and what could be improved in both communities.
