Nur Kareelawati Binti Abd Karim
Dr Nur Kareelawati is a senior lecturer in communication and media studies at the Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia. Her industrial experience at the ASTRO All Asia Broadcast Centre in Malaysia (between 2001 and 2009) sparked her interest in media production and labour. Her Ph.D. examined the production quality of television programmes and quality of working life in religious television production. Her fieldwork involved participant observation and interviews of key personnel working in television production. Aside from labour in television production, Nur is also interested in intersections of religion, media and popular culture.
