Tabitha Black Lock - Blog 5: Food and Water in Bangladesh

Post type: 
Blog post

When people ask me about my experience in Bangladesh, one of the first question is often: "what did you eat?". Therefore, in order to answer this question, I have chosen to write about some of the most common foods eaten in Bangladesh. In addition to day-to-day meals, I will also write about issues surrounding food and water, such as the chemicals used on fresh produce, the production of tea, sources of water in the country and water quality.

Michelle Maillet - Blog 3: Reflecting on Privilege

Post type: 
Blog post

In this blog post, I will share my exploration of privilege and how I have come to see it as a concept of relativity. I will explore this primarily through questioning common perceptions of the value of material privilege in contrast with community or spiritual privilege and how these concepts are a product of the spaces that we occupy.

Perry Watson - Podcast 4: Field Perspectives on Open Defecation and a Poem

Post type: 
Blog post

In this third podcast, I share a few explanatory reasons for the continued practice of open defecation in rural India. I approach my understanding of the issue from a behavioral perspective, as I find it more relevant to the field work I have undertaken. These perspectives are adapted from a previous document that I wrote for Participatory Research in Asia. In addition, I have added some field-based anecdotes to enhance the discussion.
