Loreen Regnander – Blog 1: Pre-departure Introduction, here’s to new beginnings!

Hello, and welcome to my blog! In this podcast, I describe my personal and academic background and interests, and ultimately what has led me to the CAPI internship program. I offer a broad overview of what my work and new journey with PRIA (Society for Participatory Research in India) will consist of, and what I am hoping to take away from this experience. Specifically, for my internship I will be going to Raipur and Sarguja, which are both located in the mid India region of Chhattisgarh. I will be working and researching the occupational health and safety issues among frontline health and sanitation workers in the Chhattisgarh region. My work will also include completing podcasts (like these) and keeping a blog, while also working on a final capstone project, which I am currently planning on producing a film, however have not narrowed down on a specific topic or research question as of yet. Please join me in this journey, and enjoy my personal insights along the way.
