Grandparent Project

Register for this Event 


This is a presentation of the results of the first cohort of students participating in The Grandparent Project: Inter-generational Conversations about Family, Mobility and Identity. Student members of the Asian Pathways Research Lab present their final projects, which combine oral histories of mobility from, between and within Asia and Canada, with their own personal reflections.

The students working on this project have been investigating, in greater detail, the mobility histories and practices within their own families in order to reflect on how their own pathways are both similar and different from those of older generations.

The stories present encourage new kinds of inter-generational conversations about the changing meanings of home, belonging, mobility, identity, diaspora and citizenship.

The event will be structured as a literary short story reading, and copies of our inaugural publication Pathways will be distributed at the event.
