Associate Professor in the Department of Geography and Environmental Studies at Toronto Metropolitan University
Trained in urban social geography, Sutama Ghosh is keenly interested in documenting and understanding the settlement experiences of immigrants and refugees in the Canadian urban milieu. Largely an urban population, new Canadians (who are predominantly of non-European origin) face numerous challenges in accessing some of the basic needs of life during their process of settlement, including food and shelter. She is particularly interested in exploring their unequal access to these basic human needs and the impact of such inequality on their social identities and levels of integration into the Canadian society. Her current research focuses on the intersections between housing deprivation, and new comer’s unequal access to nutritious food in Toronto’s inner suburbs.
