Outgoing Crossing Borders Scholar

Charlene (Charli) is a Master’s student in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Victoria. In the Canadian context, Charli has conducted research which looked at the effects of migration on the food security and diets of immigrants and refugees. Inspired by her findings, Charli will take her skill set to Singapore this summer to explore Indonesian domestic workers’ experiences with food and eating in Singaporean households, in order to assess their food security and how it is linked to their emotional well-being, social relations, and inequality. Her research aims to highlight the place of food security in the lives of migrant women, and advocate for the fair treatment of foreign domestic workers with hopes of informing government policy.
