A tweet from the journal that reads "The @AsianJofLS  is pleased to announce the winner of its inaugural Graduate Student Paper Competition in 2021: “Law and Digitality: Tracing Modern Epistemologies and Power” by Salwa Tabassum Hoque, a Ph.D. candidate in Media, Culture & Communication at New York University (NYU)."

Doctoral student Salwa Hoque has been selected by the Asian Journal of Law and Society to receive its inaugural graduate student Best Paper Award. The journal is co-produced by Cambridge University Press and the China Institute for Socio-Legal Studies.

The paper is based on Hoque's thesis research examining legal pluralism in Bangladesh. Specifically, the work looks at how the digitization of law and legal records further marginalizes communities in the Global South.

Hoque is a fourth-year doctoral candidate in the Department of Media, Culture, and Communication engaging with theoretical frameworks from political theory, media studies, and legal anthropology. She holds a Master of Arts in South Asia Studies (concentrations: Political Theory and History) from Columbia University.
