I am Preeti Raghunath, Lecturer in Digital Media and Society at the University of Sheffield. Over the past decade, I have conducted theoretical and empirical research in the field of global media policy. My current research is on human personhood and the global data economy, where I study the intersections of data industries, infrastructures and governance. Prior to joining the University of Sheffield, I taught at universities in India and Malaysia.
My policy ethnography in South Asia was published as a book with Palgrave Macmillan, in 2020. An edited collection on media anthropology has been submitted to Routledge. I am a co-editor of the Palgrave Global Media Policy and Business book series, and serve on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Digital Media and Policy. Find out more in my CV here.
I am driven by curiosity, value learning and growth, like understanding people’s creative-academic processes, and immensely enjoy partaking in the enterprise of knowledge.
