Participants Needed For Research In Tamil Food Studies


A study about food consumption, food provisioning and the status of meat among Tamil, and other South Asian communities, in Toronto and the GTA, is taking place at the University of Toronto Scarborough.

This research is part of the project “Tasting the Global City: Multicultural Histories of Toronto’s Cuisines”, directed by Professor Jeffrey Pilcher.

Tamil participants are currently being recruited to share their insights. As a participant in the study, you would be asked to take part in a face-to-face interview or in a focus group, lasting from a minimum of 10 minutes to a maximum of 60. The interviews would take place at UofT Scarborough (1265 Military Trail) or elsewhere in the GTA.

To volunteer for this study, which has been reviewed and approved by the University of Toronto’s Research Ethics Board, or for more information, please contact Michaël Bruckert at 647-571-5538 or

Michaël is a post-doctoral fellow at the Culinaria Research Centre at UofT Scarborough, in the Department of Historical and Cultural Studies.

Culinaria is an initiative bringing together students and faculty in partnerships with community organizations and other institutions. The Culinaria Research Centre is interested in the cross-disciplinary engagement with the meaning, practice, and ongoing evolution of global cuisine.
