RMIT authors showcase - Professor Supriya Singh


At RMIT we are extremely proud of our academics and their contributions to research in their fields of expertise. As part of our showcase of RMIT authors, we are delighted to feature Professor Supriya Singh and her recent publication titled "Money, migration and family: India to Australia".

Professor Supriya Singh is the Professor of Sociology of Communications in the RMIT Graduate School of Business and Law and co-leads the AsiaPacific@RMIT initiative at RMIT University. Her research interests include globalization, migration, money and banking, gender and financial inclusion and the transnational family.

Her latest publication, "Money, Migration, and Family: India to Australia" tells the story of five decades of Indian migration to Australia, through the eyes of migrants and their families. It explores the shift in migration from professionals to student-migrants; the two-way flow of money between families in India and Australia, and the impact of changing methods of communication between migrants and their families.
