In Bangalore, we are collaborating with Stree Jagruti Samiti to collect qualitative data from different stakeholders.

Blog Entry Doing Standpoint Theory
by Ambika Tandon and Aayush Rathi published Oct 10, 2019 last modified Dec 06, 2019 04:59 AM — filed under: , , , , , ,
Feminist research methodology has evolved from different epistemologies, with several different schools of thought. Some of the more popular ones are feminist standpoint theory, feminist empiricism, and feminist relativism. Standpoint theory holds the experiences of the marginalised as the source of ‘truth’ about structures of oppression, which is silenced by traditional objectivist research methods as they produce knowledge from the standpoint of voices in positions of power. In this essay published on the GenderIT website, Ambika Tandon and Aayush Rathi [1] discuss the practical applicability of these epistemologies to research practices in the field of technology and gender.

Blog Entry How Green is the Internet? The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
by Aishwarya Panicker published Sep 23, 2016 last modified Sep 23, 2016 05:02 AM — filed under: , ,
This essay by Aishwarya Panicker is part of the 'Studying Internet in India' series. The author draws attention to the fact that there is little data, debate, analysis, and examination of the environmental impact of the internet, which is true especially for India. She explores four central issue areas. First, as the third highest country in terms of internet use, what is the current environmental impact of internet usage in India? Second, are there any regulatory provisions that give prescriptive measures to data centres and providers? Third, do any global standards exist in this regard and finally, what future steps can be taken (by the government, civil society and individuals) to address this?

Blog Entry Mobilizing Online Consensus: Net Neutrality and the India Subreddit
by Sujeet George published Sep 27, 2016 last modified Sep 27, 2016 04:52 AM — filed under: , , , ,
This essay by Sujeet George is part of the 'Studying Internet in India' series. The author offers a preliminary gesture towards understanding reddit’s usage and breadth in the Indian context. Through an analysis of the “India” subreddit and examining the manner and context in which information and ideas are shared, proposed, and debunked, the paper aspires to formulate a methodology for interrogating sites like reddit that offer the possibilities of social mediation, even as users maintain a limited amount of privacy. At the same time, to what extent can such news aggregator sites direct the ways in which opinions and news flows change course as a true marker of information generation responding to user inputs.
