Dr Rohit K Dasgupta
I am a Senior Lecturer and Programme Director in Global Communication and Development at the Institute for Media and Creative Industries, Loughborough University. As an ethnographer my work cuts across several disciplines with particular interests in media, development, protest culture, queer politics and South Asia. I am currently working on several projects on the labour movement, youth cultures, public health and sexuality. I am also currently a Labour and Cooperative Party councillor for the Canning Town South Ward in the London Borough of Newham. I am a committed Trade unionist (GMB and UCU) and have been involved in Labour politics with an interest in local and community level work. I was the Labour Party parliamentary candidate for East Hampshire in 2017. I was also a Labour Party MEP Candidate in South East England.
