“She thought it was the misfortune of poetry to be seldom safely enjoyed by those who enjoyed it completely; and that the strong feelings which alone could estimate it truly were the very feelings which ought to taste it but sparingly." -Jane Austen

CSGS Visiting Scholar: Satarupa Dasgupta

CSGS Visiting Scholar: fall 2013

Satarupa Dasgupta

Satarupa Dasgupta served as an assistant professor and faculty fellow at the College of Nursing, NYU and was a recipient of New York University’s Postdoctoral and Transition Program for Academic Diversity Fellowship. She is an adjunct faculty in the media, culture and communication department at NYU Steinhardt. Her doctoral dissertation examined community mobilization, contextualization of health behavior, and participation in a healthcare intervention initiative among commercial female sex workers in India. She has a series of publications in her research areas which include examination of sexual health behavior among high-risk populations, community health advocacy, gender and HIV/AIDS, and development oriented participatory communication. She teaches courses on health and the media, development communication, gender and communication, and globalization and identity negotiation.

Current research:

In 2012 Satarupa received NYU’s global public health research challenge grant which she utilized to conduct a study among male and transgender sex workers in India. The project involved an ethnographic study to examine the sexual identity negotiation and socio-cultural contextualization of health behavior of male and transgender commercial sex workers in India. Based on the study findings she is currently writing a book that researches on gender identity negotiation among male and transgender sex worker groups and focuses on STI/HIV transmission reduction. Her work is expected to aid in redesigning future programmatic interventions that can cater more effectively to the needs of the Indian male and transgender commercial sex worker population.
