Short Term Research Projects in Social Media: Selected Proposals 2015

The Sarai Programme is committed to developing a public architecture for creating knowledge and creative communities. In keeping with this commitment, we seek to develop a community of scholars, writers and practitioners who are motivated to make the materials and outcome of research available for public access and circulation, with the understanding that an imaginative engagement with social experience will be best fostered by a sharing of information, ideas, research materials and resources. We see our system of Short Term Research Projects as a resource that will be built on by many people working whether individually or in groups, but with a sense of collective endeavour and public purpose.

Call for Abstracts – Video Workshop

The arrival of video ushered in a new logistics of access, circulation and production of audio-visual forms. Analog video introduced new infrastructures and legal contests for film circulation and viewing cultures, set new terms for amateur and professional practices in home videos, documentary and commercial works, pedagogical practices and civil society activism, and has been a key dimension of the history of surveillance. This workshop seeks to track this history and also to consider the shifts engendered with the arrival of digital video.

Contemporary Marginalities: History, Knowledge, Theory – Research Scholars’ Workshop

This is an intensive two-week workshop for research scholars, aimed at the honing of research skills and creation of theoretical and methodological awareness. The workshop is oriented towards elaborating the general problematic of ‘margins and marginalities.’ The margins, for our purposes, constitute the vantage point from which to view and analyze a diverse set of historical and contemporary issues. Tentatively, we are planning to discuss the themes of knowledge, language, economy, democracy, religion, body, city, media and art.
