SASI 2nd Annual Symposium Audio Available Online

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.
