Hello, Bonjour, Namaste

My name is Neha Bhatia. I hold a Ph.D. in transnational film and media industries from the University of Calgary. My research received funding support through the Alberta Graduate Excellence Scholarship in 2021. 


Based on my multicultural background and international academic experiences at universities including India, the United Kingdom, France, Spain, and Canada, I am committed to creating safe, inclusive, and brave spaces to share diverse perspectives and opinions to stimulate creativity and critical thinking in the classroom.

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. 

Please scroll below to know more and get in touch. I will be glad to answer any questions you may have! ​​​​Thank you for stopping by.


My research and teaching interests are interdisciplinary including

transnational cinema, film festival studies, film, media and creative industries, production studies, Indian independent cinema and South Asian cinema.

A wider spectrum of my research interests includes:

postcolonial studies, feminism, media labour, cultural policy studies, anthropology, ethnography, literary theory and film theory.
