Assistant Professor, University of Wisconsin, Madison

Aswin Punathambekar's research and teaching revolve around globalization, culture industries, new media and media convergence, and public culture. He is currently working on a book that provides a historical and critical account of ongoing changes in the media sector in Bombay and examines the operations of film, television, and dot-com companies as they grapple with the challenges of imagining "Bollywood" as a global cultural industry.

Punathambekar has published articles in Biblio, International Journal of Cultural Studies, and Gazette: International Journal for Communication Studies, and has also co-edited an anthology of essays (Global Bollywood, NYU Press, 2008). He blogs about these and other topics at BollySpace 2.0
