Guillaume is currently a doctoral student in the Social Anthropology graduate programme at York University. Theoretically informed by the sub-field of economic anthropology, his PhD dissertation seeks to ethnographically examine the ways in which “the economy” is connected to the practices and meanings of food, foodways, and food (in)security in New Delhi, India. Broadly speaking, his areas of research are: political economy, political ecology, capitalisms, theories of development, actor-network theory, the concepts of governmentality and habitus. His main site of research is the (Targeted) Public Distribution System, a 50-year-old distribution program for subsidized food and non food items that is currently on the verge of being overhauled by the central government. Guillaume holds a BA in Communication/Journalisme the Université du Québec à Montréal and a MA in Mondialisation et développement international at the University of Ottawa.
