- Digital Decolonial Queerness: Assertions and Negotiations in Indian Women’s Online Communities
I am a PhD candidate and graduate teaching assistant in the Department of Politics and International Studies at SOAS, studying queer and trans women’s digital cultures in India. My research sits at the intersection of gender, sexuality, political economy, and digital media, with a focus on postcolonial articulations of queer sexuality. I am interested in the possibilities of radical queer assertions in online space(s), and the limits imposed on such possibilities by political economic configurations of social media platforms. I hold an MA in International Journalisms from SOAS and a BMM in Journalism from University of Mumbai. Currently, I am Co-Managing Editor for Issue 2 of the CHASE AHRC funded Digital Studies Collective (DiSCo) Journal, and I work as a tutor with The Brilliant Club. I have previously worked as a journalist and communications professional covering gender, sexuality, politics, music and culture, and digital technologies.
