29.04.2021: Veranstaltung des CRC 1171 zu "Gendered Indian Digital Publics - Labor and Affect" (Prof. Radhika Gajjala)

News vom 27.04.2021

Das CRC 1171 Affective Societies: Dynamics of Social Coexistence in Mobile Worlds veranstaltet am 29. April 2021 einen Online-Talk im Rahmen seiner Lecture Series, die sich rund um Strukturveränderungen der Öffentlichkeit und neuen Auslegungen von Öffentlichkeitskonzepten dreht. Dieses Mal wird Prof. Radhika Gajjala von der Bowling Green State University um 18 Uhr zum Thema „Gendered Indian Digital Publics – Labor and Affect“ referieren. Hier ein erster Einblick:

„The emergence of overlapping and intertwining publics occurs through the formation of both localized social media interactions and global facing publics. Common affective characteristics of such publics include ideological clashes, interpersonal disputes, feelings of being “left out” but they also include affects leading to self-affirmation, validation, friendship and collaboration. Drawing long term digital ethnographic research in South Asian and Indian digital diasporic contexts and with a focus on particular case studies and moments, I examine how affective intensities create resonances in across social media platforms through hashtag activisms as they trans-nationalize localized issues. The focus is on gendered political and entrepreneurial subjects as they emerge in digital publics and the key ways in which affects are deployed by different actors in making selves and others visible as political and/or entrepreneurial subjects.“
