Call for Abstracts: Seminar on Technology-Mediated Gender Based Violence

Call for Abstracts – National Seminar on Technology-Mediated Gender Based Violence

IT for Change and Advanced Centre for Women’s Studies, Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai, announce a national seminar on technology-mediated gender-based violence (GBV). Existing public debate on this issue is marked by one-off reporting of a few cases in media and short-lived sensationalism. We sorely lack a systematic stock-taking of the phenomenon from a gender equality perspective. The proposed seminar seeks to address this gap. It will explore the issue normatively, legally and empirically, bringing feminist conceptions of the digital to the table and attempt to articulate what freedom from violence means in relation to online spaces.

Deadline: 31 October 2017
