As my last blog post I decided to do a reflective podcast to help with processing everything that has transpired over the past few months in India. Kenda - the other CAPI intern in India - was kind enough to make an appearance as my interviewer.

Sidney Moss - Blog 6: To Be Notified Is Not To Be Noticed

Post type: 
Blog post

The difference between 'notified' and 'non-notified' informal settlements is not always obvious; nonetheless, it is important to understand the significance and meaning of each title. This is a topic that has confused me as much as it has interested me, so bear with me as I attempt to unpack some of the complexities within this topic.

Sidney Moss - Blog 3: Shut Up and Listen

Post type: 
Blog post

As mentioned in my previous post, my first month in India was spent at the PRIA office in Delhi where I learned the details and background of the project that I was assigned to. I researched the topic of ‘urban sanitation’ as much as I could; trying to develop a base understanding of sanitation issues in Indian cities before I was sent to the field. This time was well spent, as it eased me into the complexity of the project, and of India itself. However, I still found myself struggling with letting go of the need to “grasp” a topic.

Blog post

First of all, I would like to apologize for my raspy voice that decided to make an appearance on the day of this interview. My immune system has proven to be less than sufficient over the past few weeks. Regardless of this, I have been trying to figure out the best way to structure my first blog post. This has been unexpectedly challenging for me - not in that I did not have enough to say, but in that I had too much that I wanted to tackle.
