Mukta Das

Mukta Das completed a PhD in the Anthropology of Food at SOAS in 2018. Her research focused on South Asian food communities and networks in China's Pearl River Delta, particularly in Macau, Hong Kong and Guangzhou. Her research explored notions of food belonging and identity and charted the transformations of these in the decades after the end of British and Portuguese colonialism in the region among South Asian food purveyors and how they had adapted to changing, immigrant-receiving Chinese realities.
