The documentary Writing with Fire follows the women journalists of India’s all-female newspaper as they risk it all, including their own safety, to cover the country’s political, social, and local news from a women-powered perspective. From underground network to an independent media empire they defy the odds to redefine power.
After the screening, Professor Sulafa Zidani and Dolly Arjun will host a discussion with the audience. Professor Zidani has published on online culture mixing, Arab and Chinese media politics, and critical transnational pedagogy in venues such as: Social Media + Society; Asian Communication Research; Media, Culture & Society; International Journal of Communication, and others. Dolly Arjun is a Dalit-American feminist who works in medicine and lives in the Boston area.
The screening will take place on March 15th, 2022 at 6:30 PM in the MIT Bartos Theater (E15-070).
