Digital technologies like virtual reality and artificial intelligence are impacting the ways we imagine visuality, storytelling and creativity.

Feminism has become the most controversial, most discussed and most contested subject in India’s current academic field. North East Indian feminism generally depended on Western feminism as well as Indian feminism frameworks. These two frameworks are diversely intricate from North-East India in term of race, class, caste, culture and religion, etc. Moreover, it is important to note that most Indian mainstream feminists are brought up in a specific cultural setting i.e. class, caste, religion etc. from various parts of India. ‘Indian feminist thought’ is a term that they coined through their own discourse.

Many universities, departments, programs and/or faculty have developed their own policies about the use of AI in the classroom. Some advocate for banishing it completely, while others advocate for embracing it completely. Still others are not quite sure what it can do and whether they should embrace it or not. If banishing AI from the writing classroom, how is that monitored? If embracing AI in the writing classroom – what does that look like? Your research on this topic is valuable to all of us.
