The Current Team of Reporting To Remember Project
September 2018 - ongoing
Blank Noise is working with the Ashoka University Young India Fellows from September 2018 to May 2019. The Young India Fellow Team has been involved in the research, mapping, reviewing meta data and setting up a research methodology.
The team is also working towards the dissemination of Reporting To Remember Archive via a public intervention.
Anand is looking at news stories coming out of the UK as well as reports highlighting how the blame narrative is propagated by different agencies e.g. police, media, immediate neighborhood of the victim etc, and how such narratives exist everywhere and in turn creates a culture where sexual harassment is normalized for growing up girls and boys.
Salik has worked on researching and documenting cases of victim blaming in the Middle Eastern region. He has looked at individual stories, and also tried to understand why certain sexist laws existed and how policy changes have tried to tackle discrimination against women.
Shivangi has worked on adding stories of India to the archive of reports that perpetuate the system of victim blaming. She has also contributed in ideating and planning the further course of action in this project and structuring it according to the plans decided.
Shubham has worked on understanding the narrative around victim blaming in Europe. With the team of five, he has also worked on structuring the project and making it more accessible.
Snigdha has worked on understanding the narrative of blame in South India. Apart from research, she has contributed toward analysis and structuring of the project.
