Dr. Neelam Sharma, Associate Professor in the Department of Communication, Media and Persuasion, has been awarded a Senior Research Fellowship (2023-2025) by the American Institute of Indian Studies (AIIS) to carry out research for her book titled, “Online hatred, abuse, and women journalists in the era of digitalization in India: Opportunities and Challenges.”
The book will include women journalists’ in-depth interviews, survey responses, and an analysis of their social media posts.
Sharma's forthcoming book is under contract with Peter Lang Publishers as a part of the prestigious and highly competitive AEJMC-Peter Lang Scholarsourcing series. This book proposal was one of the two proposals that was offered a book contract following peer feedback by the Association of Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (AEJMC) review committee in 2022.
