Le chercheur Guillaume Dandurand discute de sa thèse de doctorat, The Techno-Politics of Food Security in Delhi: The Re-Materialization of the Ration Card, sur le podcast Grad Life de la Faculté des étudiants.es diplômés.ées de York University.

This week, two York PhD candidates illuminate underexplored stories from India. FIRST: In 2018, India’s Supreme Court legalised homosexuality, but the fight for equality isn’t over yet. Shraddha Chatterjee (Feminist & Women’s Studies) will explore how lesbian and bisexual women and trans-masculine persons continue to live in conditions of heightened precarity. PLUS: The National Food Security Act came into effect in 2013. Guillaume Dandurand (Social Anthropology) is focusing on one aspect of it: the ration card. After spending 17 months in New Delhi, Dandurand discusses how the digitisation of the card has generated some systemic exclusions.
