Shehram Mokhtar is a doctoral candidate in media studies at the University of Oregon. His interests in media, performance, and cultural studies intersect with transgender studies and feminist, queer, and postcolonial theory. He researches on media and performance cultures of various marginalized communities in the Global South, specifically Pakistan, and aim to produce scholarship from the perspective of the margins. This is particularly challenging because media and communication studies engender a Eurocentric way of knowing the world. However, contemporary scholars working on media particularly within the frameworks of transgender studies and feminist, queer, and postcolonial theory have opened up avenues for dialogue with the field.
