Event description

Description

This workshop will probe how indigeneity, immigration, and shifting politics of empire, nation, and citizenship are illuminated through South Asian migration histories in comparative and connected contexts. One element will probe the role of Canadian histories at multiple levels – indigenous, imperial, migrant – as they intersect with South Asian histories and politics of migration. Thematic panels will explore citizenship, labor diasporas past and present, the arts, legal histories, and radicalism. Furthermore, the workshop will also include sessions that bridge academic research and public engagement, including a session about data management and archiving community histories. The event will begin with a public lecture by Gaiutra Bahadur titled "Conjure Women and Coolie Women," on Thursday, October 26, 2017, at 4:30 p.m., at David Strong Building, C126, on the University of Victoria campus. Panel sessions will run from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. on Friday October 27th, 2017, and from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. on Saturday, October 28th, 2017 in Fraser Hall, Room 142, at the University of Victoria.
