I am Preeti Raghunath, Lecturer (Communication and Media) at the School of Arts and Social Sciences, Monash University, Malaysia. My current work is on data governance in South and Southeast Asia, where I build conceptual and qualitative research.
My academic interests lie in communication and media governance, and media anthropology. Drawing from this, my work has focused on the interlinkages between communication technologies and associated making of policies, placing people at the centre of such an inquiry.
Areas of interest: I enjoy researching on:
- public-centric workings of communication technologies, both policies and practices
- empire and media, bringing archival and ethnographic perspectives to the global
- theorising media policy through critical, deliberative and sustainability lenses
