Digital Storytelling in Bangladesh: Experiences, Challenges and Possibilities

Published on 12 September 2012

This article reflects on a digital storytelling project undertaken for research, communication, and advocacy purposes in Bangladesh.

The project trained young women from different regions of the country to make digital stories about their everyday struggles and journeys of personal growth. Excerpts from selected digital stories are shared to highlight how these short films can be used to understand struggles against class and gender hierarchies, sexual harassment, and the need to establish full citizenship rights for minority groups. The article makes a case for digital stories as a new methodology for doing and communicating research. It also sheds light on the nature of the technology itself and confronts the limitations and dilemmas that were faced, particularly with regard to authenticity and representation.
