Blog Entry Call for Research Fellows - Field Studies of Platform-Work
by Sumandro Chattapadhyay published Oct 24, 2018 last modified Oct 31, 2018 11:09 AM — filed under: , , ,
We invite applications for *three Research Fellow positions* to undertake field studies of platform-work in two cities, including Bangalore and another city (to be decided). The project seeks to produce a comparative understanding of at least two different kinds of platform-work as unfolding across Indian cities. Each fellow will be responsible for one field study (one form of work in one city) based on their language fluency and research experience. The Research Fellows will be associated with CIS from December 2018 to June 2019, undertake fieldwork, participate in two research workshops, and prepare an Ethnographic Report based on the fieldwork.

Blog Entry Mock-Calling – Ironies of Outsourcing and the Aspirations of an Individual
by Sreedeep published Aug 06, 2015 last modified Aug 06, 2015 05:00 AM — filed under: , , ,
This post by Sreedeep is part of the 'Studying Internets in India' series. He is an independent photographer and a Fellow at the Centre for Public Affairs and Critical Theory, Shiv Nadar University, Delhi. In this essay, Sreedeep explores the anxieties and ironies of the unprecedented IT/BPO boom in India through the perspective and experiences of a new entrant in the industry, a decade ago. The narrative tries to capture some of the radical hedonistic consequences of the IT-burst on our lifestyles, imagination and aspirations delineated and fraught with layers of conscious deception and prolonged probation.
