Students from the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism reported in India on how queer life has changed since the country decriminalized gay sex, why young men are paying smugglers to flee Punjab in droves, the deadly consequence of the government’s slow adoption of new drugs to cure drug resistant TB, the plight of Tamil refugees from Sri Lanka still living in limbo, and much more.

The Institute for South Asia Studies invites you to join us and listen to these student journalists as they present their print and video stories and tell us how they reported them.

The event will be moderated by Geeta Anand, Acting Professor of Reporting at the UC Berkeley School of Journalism and lead faculty of the India reporting group.
