Shiva Thorat

I have worked with digital media and have studied societal power equations and high-low culture. I was a creative assistant  at  media production  companies such as  Taxi Films and Hill Road Media, both of Mumbai. I also worked as a dissemination manager at the School of Media and Cultural Studies, TISS. I was an associate researcher  on  Jugaad Mobile, a project started by Queen Mary’s University of London. As a Sarai Fellow, I have  studied invisible labour and the fugitive nature of small scale industry linked to the “downloading culture” in Khandesh, Maharashtra. My publications include ‘Jugaad and Tactics, Reflections and Downloading Culture in Khandesh.’At CLIx, I assist in media production for the digital student modules and the online teacher professional development courses and research.
