Hi, I am Sriram.
I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Communication and Media and Rackham Predoctoral Fellow at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
I am also the co-author of the edited volume Global Digital Cultures: Perspectives from South Asia (University of Michigan Press, 2019) and I serve as an associate editor of the peer-reviewed journal BioScope: South Asian Screen Studies.
My dissertation, provisionally titled “Digital Defiance: Political Expression and Technological Citizenship in India,” examines the production and circulation of cultural artifacts like political banners, protest songs, and satirical videos exemplifying the online mediation of contentious politics in southern India.
I am interested in the everyday politics of digitization in postcolonial democracies and my dissertation project explores this broader concern by focusing on digital media cultures, political expression, and state-citizen relationships.
