Hello, Bonjour, Namaste

My name is Neha Bhatia. I'm currently a Postdoc Fellow supported by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Program in the Department of Communication Studies at the University of Antwerp, within the Young Universities for the Future of Europe (YUFE) Alliance. The research project examines labour practices, policies, and processes involved in the global circulation of contemporary Indian cinemas amidst digital transformations in the film and media industries.


My research and teaching specializations are media industry studies, production studies, creative labour and Indian cinema, with additional expertise in transnational film cultures and world cinema.

Based on my multicultural background and international academic experiences at universities across India, Canada and Europe, I am committed to creating safe, inclusive, and brave spaces in the classroom. My goal is to encourage the exchange of diverse perspectives and opinions to stimulate creativity and critical thinking .

Besides research and teaching, I have also worked as a production intern in the Calgary film and media industry. Additionally, I lead and collaborate on projects related to Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in higher education. 

I am open to collaborations and will be glad to answer any questions you may have! ​​​


My research and teaching interests are interdisciplinary including
film, media and creative industries, production studies, Indian cinema and South Asian cinema.
A wider spectrum of my research interests includes:
media labour, cultural policy studies, anthropology, ethnography, literary theory and film theory.
