Category: Submodule 2b: “Medialisation and Empowerment
The Standing Working Group of GHI London on the theme of “Medialisation and Empowerment“ unites the partners India Branch Office, GHI Rome, OI Beirut, the London School of Economics and Political Science, the Centre for the Study of Developing Societies in New Delhi and the Centre for Modern Indian Studies of the University in Göttingen. The research enquires into interactions between the rise of mass media and emancipation movements over the long 20th century. It concentrates on women as the largest self-emancipation reference group and the medial circulation and reception of feminist ideas within a global context.
We regularly introduce scholars that work in the project by letting them answer three short questions. Today, we talk to Maya Caspari. Maya is Curator at the German Historical Institute in London.
