Cultural Landscapes: Vancouver’s South Asian Community

November 26, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

$17.50

Sunday, November 26
11am-12:30pm
Naveen Girn, Paneet Singh and Milan Singh

In one of the earliest South Asian Canadian novels, Sadhu Singh Dhami wrote that sometimes the landscape of Vancouver can evoke the idea of home because “the Fraser was much like the Sutlej gliding through the plains of the Punjab.” This talk looks at how migrants over the past 100 years have worked to create belonging and thread their lives into the story of Vancouver. From the epic tale of the Komagata Maru to clandestine freedom movements, from the fight for civil rights to the living legacy of trauma and displacement, this talk will illuminate South Asian stories and intercultural relationships that can only happen in Vancouver.
