#AanaJaana Storymap

Curating gendered digital lives in Delhi’s urban peripheries

Combining approaches from urban geography, gender studies, software ethnography and Geographic Information Systems (GIS), this ArcGIS mapping initiative is a unique interdisciplinary international collaboration between the AHRC funded ‘Gendering the Smart City’ research network in the UK and societal partners Safetipin and Jagori in India.

The Story Map contains data that has been collected in collaboration with young millenial women living in Madanpur Khadar JJ Colony (one of Delhi’s many slum resettlement colonies on the urban edges), and follows on from our ‘#AanaJaana [#ComingGoing]: Curating Women’s Digital Stories of the City‘ exhibition, part of the ‘Art in Public Places’ initiative led by India Habitat Centre and Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) and was shown from 1st to 31st January 2019 at Mandi House Metro Station, New Delhi.
