Sandra Fahy is an associate professor of anthropology, and program director for the Bachelors of Global and International Studies at Carleton University. She specializes in the study of human rights abuses in North Korea. Fahy discusses her book, Marching Through Suffering: Loss and Survival in North Korea. In it, she describes the history of the North Korean Famine, and argues that the North Korean government tightly controlled the language that was used to talk about the famine, leading to creative ways in which North Korean citizens talked about, and coped with, extreme hunger.
