Constructing Heritage in Canada’s South Asian Diasporas Symposium

Published on April 16, 2021

Presented by the Association of Critical Heritage Studies – Canada

June 16 2021
10 am (Pacific Daylight Time) via Zoom

POSTER

This symposium examines the construction and performance of cultural heritage in South Asian diaspora communities in Canada. Panelists bring critical perspectives on how and why ‘heritage’ is important in grassroots settings, and whose heritage is omitted from the Canadian historical record. How does diasporic heritage challenge issues – such as the term South Asian, or the term Canadian?

SPEAKERS:

Dr. Satwinder Kaur Bains, University of the Fraser Valley
Prof Srilata Ravi, University of Alberta
Itrath Sayed, Simon Fraser University
Kathleen Boodhai, Northumbria University
