AIPS Sponsored Photo Exhibition: The Other Pakistan by Individual Member Elisabeth Braun

This exhibition showcases 30 images by 20 Pakistani photographers who in their work have aimed to capture the rich texture, beauty and dignity of contemporary life in Pakistan. The photographers are members of the Pakistan Photographers Group (PPG) and participated earlier this year in a competition to determine winning entries for this exhibition. The subjects presented in their photographs are people, young and old, in urban and rural settings, at work and at play as well as historic architecture, landscapes and uniquely Pakistani sports. Just as the 20 photographers introduced in this exhibition are individuals with their own identities, so the images conveyed will reflect their own individual visions of Pakistan's humanity.

The slide show is available below.

Brown Bag Radio

SASA's Brown Bag Radio initiative brings current research and topical issues about South Asia live to the Internet. Presentations are modeled on brown bag seminars of the sort held at universities and think tanks around the world. The presenter has between 20 and 30 minutes to speak. An associated PowerPoint file accompanies the talk and is available for download. A discussant gets first chance at asking questions and moderates call-in questions (details given during the live broadcast). A Q&A session fills the hour. A day later the MP3 file is posted to our blog. The PowerPoint file remains online. If you miss the live presentation you can still listen to it at any time and participate in the discussion via questions posted to the blog.
