An audio podcast, based on the 2nd Annual Symposium SASI symposium hosted in November, 2018 can be accessed online. The 2nd Annual Symposium, titled: Interpretations and Expressions: The Evolution of South Asian Canadian Experiences looked at ‘South Asia’ as a region in part as a complex enigma when it becomes attached to Canadian diaspora experiences. The research symposium reflected particularly on scholarly work that:
- Critically examined the ways in which specific disciplines reflect, investigate, teach and research South Asia and evolving South Asian Canadian Diaspora experiences and narratives
- Investigated and interpreted the evolution of ways in which South Asian Canadians define, explore and represent themselves as South Asian Canadian
- Responded to whether there are coherent body politics that adopt a taxonomy of ‘South Asian Canadian’ and the ensuing ramifications
The Symposium featured a keynote address by Dr. Renisa Mawani, Professor of Sociology at UBC as well as a number of scholars across the lower mainland.
