Sindhu Zagoren is completing her PhD at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Her dissertation, entitled Media Infrastructure: Access, Mobility and Social Formations addresses how technological infrastructure rearticulates constructions of space and time, which in turn shape our lived environments as well as how agency can be produced and articulated into large-scale actions that produce social change, and how infrastructural systems work in tandem with these processes both to maintain and challenge existing power structures. She has published in Democratic Communiqué and is an Associate Editor for the journal Cultural Studies.
