My name is Jamie and I am a second year graduate student studying International and Intercultural Communication at Royal Roads University based in Victoria BC. This November I am heading to India for a month-long field study to learn about development communication and popular culture in India. I will be travelling through Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Goa, New Delhi, Agra, Jaipur and Darjeeling.
As part of this unique learning experience, I will be maintaining this blog as part of my field report focussing on the impact of globalization and advertising (specifically billboards) towards Indian women by studying and examining the ads and the female models that are selected for the ads and the ways in which they are portrayed.
Wish me luck!
