To soothe the anthropologist and journalist in me, I joined @epw_in’s Engage in 2019, where I got the space to build visual narratives of academic articles & deep-dive into EPW’s Archives to curate exhaustive reading lists.

Here's a #thread of some of the cool work I got to do.
Designed by @lalposter, here's an illustration I curated of @durbakatha & @mrinalsatish’s eye-opening research on how evidencing of rape in S. Asia is embedded in colonial assumptions, and perpetuates stereotypes of women, their character and bodies. bit.ly/2UCeqsq
How has the trauma of the Partition been internalised by India's collective conscious? This timeline is based on Gita Viswanath's and Salma Malik's research on how the Partition came to be depicted through Hindi cinema. bit.ly/2J3qa1O

Not sure how on the radar this is for you but the #Chinaflooding season starts in 13 days and it’s already a catastrophe.

An interesting analysis of the situation.

#msm not covering this.

"I think my County will be better managed if the Government doesn't have to face Parliamentary scrutiny about any of its 'plans'.

Since it can achieve this simply through #coronavirusuk inaction, it has my support".
Nah. Fear mongering. Obviously, they'd never do that.

OK, Mr/Mrs "Trust the Government so much despite #Floods and #Brexit".

A friend just went to 4 asian countries. He's back now and self isolating. His comment

"In every country we passed through we were strictly monitored at the border for contagion. Including IR fever technology.
Except one.
The UK.
Checks were completely lacking."
@patel4witham is content to play politics at the home office while forgetting her day job is to manage border security.

@BorisJohnson is writing a book in the full knowledge that the day job is protecting the realm.

How countries respond in first days defines viral spread
This is what happens when you elect people who have learned nothing about delivery.

Instead these populist idiots have learned everything about politics, bigotry and rabble rousing...

Just what you don't need in a healthcare crisis.

Dealing with #covid19UK should be govt’s top priority.

I’ve called on #Johnson to pause Brexit trade talks and extend transition period so Ministers can focus.

Failure to prioritise is a recipe for disaster.

UK faces a gathering storm of managing #Coronavirus, dealing with ongoing #FloodingCrisis, whilst attempting most complicated negotiations and supply chain restructure for generations.

Govt couldn’t manage #floods crisis on its own, so how can they tackle all 3 massive threats?
#Johnson has been conspicuous by his absence during #flooding crisis and failed to show the leadership required over a threat as serious as #Coronavirus.

He’s out of his depth.
And we’re out of time.

NEW: @BorisJohnson is finally visiting South Yorkshire this morning - six days after the flooding hit.

He is doing one pooled interview and not talking to regional media.

@itvcalendar | #GE19 | #Floods
WATCH: ‘It’s took you over five days. You should have been there Saturday morning having a meeting... and I’m sorry your announcements yesterday were a pittance.’

Residents in flood-hit Stainforth tell @BorisJohnson what they think of his govt’s response.

@itvcalendar | #Floods
UPDATE: We weren’t invited to the PM’s visit to South Yorkshire. But we turned up to Stainforth on a hunch and doorstepped him. Clip soon.

Aside from us and the pool interview, I am not aware he talked to any other media but happy to be corrected.

Flash flooding overnight, after two months of rain fell in just a few hours. I’m in #Snodland #Kent @GMB - as weather warnings are issued for other parts of the UK, with much more rain forecast over the next few days. #BritishSummerTime
Locals here in #Snodland say there’s been nothing like this for at least 40 years - the radar shows massive amounts of rainfall over last 24 hours, spreading from South East across England and Wales. #WeatherWarning #Floods @GMB @metoffice

My top ten takeaways from today's SKCA decision upholding the federal carbon pricing law:

1. The Court recognized the gravity of the issue: “…climate change caused by anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is one of the great existential issues of our time.” (para 4)
2. The Court acknowledged that the threat is global: “…climate change has emerged as a major threat, not just to Canada, but to the planet itself.” (para 144)
3. The Court agreed that climate change is an emergency: “Climate change is doubtless an emergency in the sense that it presents a genuine threat to Canada.” (para 202)
