By looking at the specific placement of South Asian bodies within these spaces as an adaptable, mobile workforce the book examines the mediation of race, affect and labour in a global socio-economic environment. Noting the subalternization of South Asian digital diasporas it highlights the complexities and nuances in the racing of the South Asian body and illuminates the innately unequal power structure of the virtual workspace.
