Dr Pawan Singh received his PhD in Communication from the University of California San Diego in 2015. His scholarship is situated at the intersection of media and cultural studies, postcolonial studies, gender and sexuality and human rights scholarship. He wrote a dissertation on legal/sexual privacy discourse surrounding the struggle to decriminalize homosexuality in India with respect to global human rights, media representation and local realities of class, caste, religion and gender that shape sexual identity. As an incoming NGN (New Generation Network) scholar, he plans to develop an analytical framework within the department of contemporary history to address the broader themes of postcolonial modernity, nationalism, minority justice and representation and human and economic development during the 1990s and the early 21st century.
