Summary

 

Summary

I deliver courses in Visual Cultures (Cultural Studies and Science Humanities) to undergraduate students as part of the Imperial Horizons and iExplore programmes. My courses take an interdisciplinary approach where visual arts, media and film are used as a way to discover and explore the intersections of science and arts within specific cultures. Most of my work centres on the cultures of the Global South and looks at the ways in which non-Western societies experience globalisation (especially issues around race, gender, citizenship and intersectionality). The aim of my courses is to help decolonise the curriculum by looking at contemporary Asian, African and Latin American visual cultures. I also teach courses on digital citizenship and digital identities. Such courses look at the way human interactions are shaped by our social media presence and the way we create different social media personas in order to present ourselves and our work(s) to the world.
