We invite you to a symposium:
Constructing Heritage in Canada’s South Asian Diasporas
June 16, 2021
10 am (Pacific Daylight Time) via Zoom
Presented by the Association of Critical Heritage Studies – Canada
In partnership with
South Asian Studies Institute, University of the Fraser Valley
University of Alberta Kule Institute for Advanced Studies
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.
And we ask: How does diasporic heritage challenge issues – such as the term South Asian, or the term Canadian?
