Air India [Redacted]: At The Confluences of History, Memory and Our Silenced Past

October 28, 2015

At the intersections of history, memory, and trauma are confluences; spaces that offer opportunities for growth and understanding to occur. Engaging in this process does not diminish the individual traumas and injustices of particular events. Rather, our panel discussion, moderated by Naveen Girn, introduced storytelling as a tool through which the shared memorialization and remembrance of past events can gain a deeper resonance. Sharing their work, thoughts, and practice were Kamal Arora, Dr. Chandrima Chakraborty, Gurpreet Singh, and Dr. Milan Singh. Delving into the larger implications of silenced histories and redacted traumas, our panel shed light onto the cultural memory of our shared experience in being not just Canadian, but citizens of this fractured world. 

The evening included readings of poetry by Renee Saklikar.
