Dr. Radhika Gajjala, Professor in Communication Department and the American Culture Program at BGSU will be heading Norway (University of Bergen) on Fulbright Professorship for the AY 2015-2-16. During her stay there she will be working on her research project on “Crafting Post-coloniality and Critical Digital Humanities Research (#DHCRIT)” for which she will conduct ethnographic research on two intersecting projects. One looks at mobile technologies and diasporic South Asians and the other looks at fiber/handcrafting communities and their use of digital technologies globally. She will bring these two topics together in the context of Postcolonial Science and Technology studies and Digital Media/Cultures Research. She will also be co-teaching courses offered through University of Bergen on topics such as Digital Culture, Information Society, History and Philosophy of Computer Technologies, and Gender and Game Studies.
