FULL VIDEO OF TALK
Watch the full video (above) of the talk by Amita Baviskar on the role of processed foods in the cultural imagination of Indians across regions, classes, and the rural-urban continuum.
Baviskar argues that the consumption practices industrial foods engender are productive sites for imagining citizenship cutting across social hierarchies, creating new identities, and diluting stigmatised ones.
Amita Baviskar is Professor of Sociology at the Institute of Economic Growth, Delhi.
