Amrita Ibrahim is Associate Teaching Professor of Anthropology and Director of Undergraduate Studies at the Department of Anthropology at Georgetown Universitys College of Arts and Sciences.
Amrita Ibrahim is Associate Teaching Professor of Anthropology and Director of Undergraduate Studies at the Department of Anthropology at Georgetown University's College of Arts and Sciences. Her research and teaching addresses questions related to 'new' and 'old' media, policing, crime and gender, particularly in the context of South Asia. Her work draws methodologically on visual and material culture and conceptually from anthropologies of the state, law, and the everyday. She has a Ph.D. in Anthropology from Johns Hopkins University and was a College Fellow at Harvard in 2013-14, where she taught courses on visual anthropology, research methods, and digital media.
Her current book project explores gender, crime, and the work of doubt in Indian journalism drawing on fieldwork conducted with journalists in Delhi, India between 2006-2014. It investigates how journalists both manipulate trust and suspicion of government and public institutions when creating public mandates while also potentially becoming untrustworthy to themselves and in their professional world. Following certain major news events, I argue that the discourses, practices, and ideologies of journalism constitute new regimes of monitoring and surveillance in the age of ubiquitous social and interactive media to which journalists are as susceptible as their targets.
