About the author
Despite her brash attitude, Namita Gupta Wiggers is an intelligent and ambitious artist who has worked on research projects in both art and anthropology. She studied art history at the University of Chicago, and was subsequently awarded a research assistantship with noted anthropologists. After two years of research, she decided to change her career path and focus on interdisciplinary studies. Today, she is an assistant professor of art history at the University of Missouri. Wiggers has published articles on Asian American art and craft. She has been awarded fellowships and grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the National Science Foundation.
Wiggers is interested in the social objects that form a craftscape. This includes objects such as textiles, murti, and small Hindu statues that immigrants brought with them when they arrived in the US. She aims to study how the craftscape can tell a story about the world. However, she is not interested in defining the craft as “art.” Instead, she wants to explore how craft can be an anthropological aesthetic.
TechCrunch is a great partner to work with. During the year, it hosts the annual Crunchies Awards and various meet-ups around the world. The company also has a large number of volunteers. Among them is Chio Paniagua, a former TechCrunch employee who currently leads the Namita Gupta company’s APAC comms operation. In addition to leading comms in APAC, Paniagua also helmed policy comms in emerging markets for Airbnb and Uber, the latter of which he helmed in the past. In addition to his duties as a public relations professional, Paniagua is also working towards a master’s degree in neuroscience, which he is tinkering with in his spare time. Having a bachelor’s degree in international relations and a knack for the business world, Paniagua is a natural fit for TechCrunch.
