  • 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM Diaspora‚Äôs Conceptual Disappearance: Subversion, Assimilation, & South Asian Diasporas

    Diaspora’s Conceptual Disappearance: Subversion, Assimilation, and South Asian Diasporas with Ishan Ashutosh

    For at least the past decade, debates over the concept of diaspora have proceeded by prying apart its multi-stranded geographies. These developments have chastened the once celebratory invocations of diaspora as a clarion call for new formulations of space and identity in the social sciences and humanities. Diaspora’s once insurrectional cartography has been broken down to the point where diaspora’s evocative spatialities have been lost. The concept now lies bordered by the very boundaries of which it once confronted, and in its most imaginative articulations, strove to transgress.

    This talk aims to recapture diaspora’s conceptual promise by turning to three geographies: inter-regional spaces, convergences in the city, and homeland- diaspora space relations. As I discuss with reference to the diversity of South Asian diasporas, these three geographies have the capacity to overturn the contemporary borders that tend to dominate research on migration.

  • 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM Eat Local, Taste Global Book Launch

    Please join Wilfrid Laurier University Press authors Glen C. Filson and Bamidele Adekunle to launch their new book Eat Local, Taste Global: How Ethnocultural Food Reaches Our Tables.

    Eat Local, Taste Global: How Ethnocultural Food Reaches Our Tables shows how the demand for ethnocultural vegetables on the part of Toronto’s South Asian, Chinese, and Afro-Caribbean Canadians is at odds with the corporate food regime. How does that regime affect the local food movement and ethnic groups’ access to their preferred foods? This book addresses that question and suggests that the protection of ethnic and national food security and sovereignty strengthens immigrant integration while producing healthy crossover effects for other Canadians. The authors will do a brief presentation and lead a discussion about issues addressed in the book.

    Refreshments Provided. Free of Charge. All are welcome.
