2017 - ongoing  

Exploring the politics of the written word, cookbooks, and access to ample food resources in the context of Dalit communities in India, this is the first test of a series of booklets, and eventually an anthology, tracing Dalit writers' memories of food in text. Picking extracts that discuss food (or lack of it) in Dalit autobiographies, these words are converted into second-person accounts, deconstructed and broken down to resemble something between recipe instructions and poetry.  

The above booklets focus on the experience of 'hunger' and 'joothan', and more themes will branch out as the research deepens.
