How do we build a caste-sensitive internet? The third session of the Challenge lecture series explored strategies and reflections on the challenges and opportunities to create an online experience that is truly freeing and inclusive to everyone, regardless of caste.
The second session of the Challenge Lecture Series 2021, “Decolonising media, communications and technology studies: An (anti)caste perspective”, addressed how analysis of the media on caste issues does not take into consideration how embedded and structural caste practices are in this field.
The Challenge Lecture Series 2021 which began on 6 August 2021, aims to explore how caste is studied and analysed in the current context of media and technology and make recommendations on new approaches to fully understand caste and analyse how it affects societies across the world.
How is the centuries-old practice of caste being re-manifested in today’s digital cultures? How can we make a truly caste-sensitive media and internet? To explore these questions and more, join us for this upcoming lecture series hosted by APC's Challenge project, beginning 6 August.
