SCHOOL OF ORIENTAL AND AFRICAN STUDIES (SOAS) CENTRE OF FILM AND MEDIA STUDIES Blogging in Pakistan [Analyzing Dr. Afia and the Swat girl-flogging] Fiza Fatima Asar SOAS ID: 262460 This dissertation is submitted in partial fulfillment of the requirements for MA Global Media and Post- National Communication at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS). Date: 01-September-2010 Word Count: 9830 Abstract: This paper looks at the blogs written about two recent events in Pakistan which caught much of public and media’s attention – the Dr. Afia case and the Swat girl-flogging incident. Both events are a product of or related to the war on terrorism in some way. However, both involve women in very different roles. My entry point in this paper is blogs written by Pakistanis and I have studied these blogs via a discourse analysis lens. Highlighting the themes that emerge from the discourse analysis of the blogs, this paper aims to reveal the viewpoints that have been normalized in Pakistan and the implications of these on the society.
