Project Title
Cortesi , Luisa (Cornell U.) "Walking on water: Talking floods and other water problems in Bihar, India"

My engagement project proposes to report about my findings on water practices during floods and in relation to water contamination. To this end, I will conduct a yatra, a collective hike, in my fieldwork area, visiting approximately 50 villages in 30 days. In this yatra, I plan to involve the personnel of the NGOs with whom I have been working since 2007. In the remaining 15 days of my project, I intend to present my work in interested institutions across the country.
