A new monthly podcast with lively conversations with scholars and activists.


online gods

We are proud to announce the launch of Online Gods – A Podcast about Digital Cultures.

How are digital interactions remoulding the public sphere in India and elsewhere? What do online cultures and debates do to questions of faith, the nation and belonging? How can anthropologists research the digital world? How can we examine the digital by inhabiting the digital?

Online Gods is a monthly podcast on digital cultures and their political ramifications, featuring lively conversations with scholars and activists.


Listen now to Episode 1: Big Data and The Ladies Finger featuring Ralph Schroeder and Nisha Susan.

Look out for a new episode of Online Gods on the last day of every month. Coming up in Episode 2 - Angela Zito on media as religion and Kuffir Nalgundwar on Dalit online activism.

Presented by anthropologist Ian Cook, “Online Gods” is a key initiative of the ERC funded project ONLINERPOL led by media anthropologist Sahana Udupa at LMU Munich. It is co-hosted by the HAU Network for Ethnographic Theory. Online Gods represents our collective commitment to multimedia diffusion of research in accessible and engaging formats.
