'Gender and Citizenship in the Information Society' Programme

With about 10 days left for the deadline on pre-proposals for the Gender and Citizenship in the Information Society Program, we are rather hopeful that there will be in the next few days, a steady email flow of applications. Indeed, the past month after the launch of the Program has been exciting. We have had discussions with many organisations and scholars and feel rather affirmed by their interest in the Program. Having the Project advisors come on board was the first pat on the back; the issue of gender and citizenship in its indisputably organic link with the digital space that we all inhabit is an area that southern feminist scholarship needs to immediately look at.

Social Science workshops at Rashtriya Madhyamika Shikshana Abhiyan (RMSA)

The last day of the State Master trainer's Social Science workshop saw an interesting discussion emerging out of the presentation of the local government. One participant made an interesting statement: “yesterday the buzzword was behaviourism, teachers were following it. Today it is constructivism and teachers are following it. Tomorrow it will be something else and teachers will be forced to follow it”. This is a controversial yet powerful statement, where it is evident that unfortunately teachers are bound to the system and barely have a voice in the decision-making process.
