Digital Intimacy: Young Women and Social Transformation in Asia
Online Session via Zoom
From 2000 to 2020, what are the ways in which Indian women formed friendships on the internet? This is a period when friendships thrived on the day’s scandal, the screenshot du jour, the decoding of the subtweet. You wanted to see and be seen online. Affection, in-jokes, gossip. All familiar material. Except that all you had in common (seemingly) was that you were on Twitter. With the rise of the corporate internet particularly after 2010, how did these friendships change? What happens when the niche interest your friendship is based on, is the internet itself?
