Dr. Sahana Udupa (LMU Munich)
Sahana Udupa is a social anthropologist and communications scholar with research interests in journalism cultures, digital media politics, religion and global urbanization. In her fieldwork in Bangalore and Mumbai in India, and among the South Asian diaspora in Europe, her work has traced the transforming media and urban landscapes of late capitalism that are today inseparable from how religion and cultures are experienced, politicized and put to a variety of intentions by actors both within and beyond the national boundaries. Conceptually, her research raises the question of 'mediation' as a media technological, performative and experiential space in which to articulate political practice.
