Student Support Series: Christopher Sisca explores Calabrian food tourism

For course-related fieldwork and conference funding, Green Templeton students can apply for Competitive Conference and Fieldwork Funding (CCFF). In the run up to Giving Day on the 5 and 6 February 2020, we’ve spoken to some of our students who have secured this funding to hear more about the work and experiences it contributes to.

Christopher Sisca 1In the latest of this Student Support Series,  Christopher Sisca (DPhil Anthropology, 2017), based at the School of Anthropology & Museum Ethnography, told us about his travels to beautiful Calabria:

“I am a 3rd year DPhil in Anthropology at Green Templeton College. I am completing my multi-sited ethnography on the development of Calabrian food tourism industries within the southern Italian region of Calabria, as well as its Calabrian diaspora community in Toronto, Canada. I was fortunate to have been awarded the CCFF last academic year which helped cover some of my accommodation and visa application fees during the portion of fieldwork I conducted in Calabria. As a student who has been funding their DPhil on a series of smaller grants and loans, I was grateful for the support the CCFF was able to provide for my fieldwork. ”
