About the Cohort of 2021

Special Cohorts on Intersectional Feminism and Digital Rights

In this age of information and new media, it is further important to gain a nuanced understanding of how India is being shaped politically, socially and economically.

The IUIF fellowship enables young fellows to gain insights and recognize how multiple forms of inequalities like caste, class, race and gender overlap and operate together to exacerbate marginalization. The fellowship also enables fellows to recognize how media shapes and is shaped by this social and political architecture.

They will learn to leverage the power of communication to discover new pathways for information creation, access & sharing; while questioning hegemonic technologies and power relations.
