The Computer Girls and the Digital Divide with Sreela Sarkar

April 18, 2017

Does access to Information Technologies lead to the leveling or breaking down of inequalities? This week we’re joined by Sreela Sarkar, Assistant Professor in the Communication department at Santa Clara and Bannan Institute Scholar in the Ignatian Center. Drawing from approaches in global communication, feminist studies, and critical policies studies, her ethnographic research seeks to understand how economic development is experienced by urban, marginalized communities who have complex and intersecting identities of class, caste, religion, and gender.
