Media, new media, social media, intellectuals, elites, South Asia
I have a deep interest in media anthropology. My PhD included use of media, new media, internet among intellectual groups in Kolkata, based on extensive fieldwork in the city in 2000. Further, I''ve made some work on Diaspora websites among Kolkata intellectuals. My predominant field of interest now is the use of web 2.0 and social media among intellectual groups in Kolkata, and among Diaspora groups.
I have a PhD in Socialanthropology, School of Global Studies, University of Gothenburg, Sweden
