Week 7 // Temporary Expert
Food and Climate Change
This week’s class was very crucial in my research about Climate Induced Migration and the role of Food in it. Thinking about food that is becoming obsolete due to climate change pushed me to explore the movement of food in the backdrop of people migrating.
Since my decision was to focus on Bangladesh, I was curious to know how migration impacts the eating habits of migrants from South Asia. I found a very interesting excerpt from Krishnendu Ray’s book The Migrant’s Table.
Side Note: I stopped eating almonds after learning about the production of Almonds in the United States, in this class.
