About the Speakers


Sayaka CHATANI

Why do people decide to fight for their nations and people? What turns people into supporters of an ideology? Sayaka Chatani has been intrigued by these questions for two decades now, which drove her to study the intersection between the nation, the military, and society in East Asia. She found her academic home in the field of history, but is eager to learn other theories and methods that help her better investigate these issues.
Dr Chatani’s next project is
Homeland: North Korean Diasporas in Postwar Japan. In collaboration with KumHee Cho, she is investigating the development of North Korean identities and their community network among the Korean diaspora. Their lives show tightly entangled contexts of post-colonialism & neo-imperialism in Japan, diaspora politics that produced a distinct emotional community, and the hegemonic presence of North Korea. Through oral histories and personal archives, this project reveals the deep grassroots connections between the most closed communist tyranny and the leading capitalist nation in Asia, and the highly politicized lives and consciousness of the Korean community that became the bridge between the two.


Taberez Ahmed NEYAZI

Taberez Ahmed Neyazi joined the Department of Communications and New Media as Assistant Professor of New Media and Political Communication in July 2017. He has considerable international experience living and working in diverse cultural settings in Asia, Europe and America. Dr Neyazi conducts qualitative and quantitative research that ranges from newsroom observation studies, media content and sentiment analysis to survey and public opinion research. He has done research in India's big cites and in small towns, as well as in the newsroom of the largest Hindi newspaper. He trained survey interviewers in Delhi 2014, Patna 2015, and Kolkata 2016.
Dr Neyazi’s research focuses on political communication and public opinion; computational social science; digital, mobile and social media; communication theory; political Islam; and public policy with a focus on India and South Asia. He has served as co-PI on the India Election Studies (IES) and the country coordinator for this project on media, campaigning, and influence in India’s National and State-level elections. The IES team includes colleagues from Emory University, Cleveland State University, Kyoto University and the National University of Singapore. The IES team aims to develop closer collaboration among institutions, students, and scholars, and build a generation of students and scholars interested in developing innovative campaign research in India.
