Thursday, September 21st, 2017 The Grandparent Project: Inter-generational Conversations about Family, Mobility and Identity

Thursday, September 21, 20171:00PM - 3:00PM208N, North House, 1 Devonshire Place


Come join us as 10 outstanding student researchers who have participated in The Grandparent Project present their final projects, which combine oral histories of mobility from Asia to Canada with personal reflections. Over the summer, these students have been working in the Asian Pathways Research Lab to investigate the mobility histories and practices of their own family members in order to reflect on how their own life pathways are both similar and different from those of older generations. The stories presented encourage new kinds of inter-generational conversations about the changing meanings of home, belonging, mobility, identity, diaspora and citizenship. This event will be structured as a literary short story reading, and free copies of our inaugural publication Pathways will be distributed at the event. This event is open to the public and ideal for students who may be interested in getting involved in the Asian Pathways Research Lab.
