Writing Forward-Manipal Abstract
When i put a pause on my PhD dreams, which i will hopefully restart – I had told in a social media post that research and writing will take on a new lease of life. I look forward to this prestigious workshop on migration next year at Manipal where I will present my ethnographic work on food spaces as migration infrastructure.
