Dear Media Anthropologists,

You can now listen to episode #7 of Online Gods – A Podcast about Digital Cultures

This month we speak with Carole McGranahan about lies and Atul Khatri about comedy.

How are digital interactions remoulding the public sphere in India and elsewhere? What do online cultures and debates do to questions of faith, the nation and belonging? How can anthropologists research the digital world? How can we examine the digital by inhabiting the digital? 

Online Gods is a monthly podcast on digital cultures and their political ramifications, featuring lively conversations with scholars and activists.


Presented by anthropologist Ian M. Cook, “Online Gods” is a key initiative of the ERC funded project ONLINERPOL led by media anthropologist Sahana Udupa at LMU Munich. It is co-hosted by the HAU Network for Ethnographic Theory. Online Gods represents our collective commitment to multimedia diffusion of research in accessible and engaging formats.
