Anirban Baishya Joins UW Madison Department of Communication Arts

We are delighted to announce that Dr. Anirban Baishya will join the UW Department of Communication and Arts in January. Anirban’s work broadly focuses on the intersections between digital media and the public sphere in a global context. He studies how digital media regulates everyday life spaces and how the ensuing “customization” of our participation in public cultures problematizes binary notions such as private/public and individual/collective. The objects he analyzes in his work includes media forms such as selfies, memes and GIFs.
