Anmol Dutta (she/her)
PhD Student, Department of English and Writing Studies
University of Western Ontario
Anmol Dutta is a PhD student in English Studies at the University of Western Ontario. Calling Mumbai her home, her love for mainstream Indian popular culture has developed into her research interests. A former Shastri fellow, she works in the areas of Cultural and Media Studies, Postcolonial Theory, and Video OTT Cultures in South Asia. The focus of her doctoral research lies in examining Netflix India as a national space of cultural exchange: a contemporary tangible link to the homeland for the Indian diaspora in Canada. Her project explores ramifications of the dialogue between culture, politics, and re-presentation with ‘protecting sensibilities’ in 2020s’ India.
She presently serves as the elected Chair of the Anti-Racism Committee and the Co-chair of the Equity Committee at Western’s graduate student-government, Society of Graduate Students SOGS. The rigorous and inclusive nature of graduate academic research that Re:Locations fosters, sparked her interest in joining the Re:Locations team as editor in 2021.
