Piyusha Chatterjee is a PhD student in the Specialized INDI Program at Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec. She is working on the South Asian migrant community in Montreal and is interested in tracing the links between industrialisation and deindustrialisation and the transnational movement of people and capital. One of her key interest areas is oral history theory and practise and as part of her PhD thesis, she will explore oral history as a methodology to talk about affective labour within industrialised and migrant communities. She is supervised by Dr. Steven High, Dr. Rachel Berger and Dr. Norma Rantisi.
Born in India, she has a background in English literature, journalism and institutional oral history.
