Upcoming Meeting/Speaker26 May 2014

Graeme MacRae is an anthropologist from New Zealand, who came to Ubud in 1993 to study economic and social changes resulting from tourism development. He got seduced, as many of us do, by more interesting things and spent 18 months studying religion and history instead. Ten years later he realized it was time to make his research more”practical” and “useful”, so he started asking farmers why they  couldn’t make a living. In the process he learnt a bit about rice. Over the past couple of years he has had the opportunity to do some research in north India – a very different corner of the Asian rice-world. He has some stories about basmati rice and mountain agriculture.
