Ratan Kumar Roy
I am a research scholar at the Department of Sociology, South Asian University, New Delhi. I have conducted an ethnography of television in Bangladesh towards my doctoral research. I take an interest in visual media and culture in Bangladesh as well as contemporary South Asia. Visual research methods and theoretical underpinning of visual and media anthropology helped me in exploring the politics of culture and society.
I worked as a coordinator in organising an international conference titled Visual South Asia: Anthropological Exploration of Media and Culture in 2017 in Dhaka, Bangladesh co-organized by Department of Anthropology, Dhaka University and Department of Sociology, South Asian University. Since the Greece conference of IVSA in 2015, I have been outreaching for the association particularly in the global South. Currently, I am looking at the fear and politics of visual in the realm of digital media circulation in Bangladesh.
