“Documenting Punjabi Canada” in W2018

“Documenting Punjabi Canada” (ASIA 475) was taught for the third time in W2018, and for the second time by PhD Candidate and documentary filmmaker, Ajay Bhardwaj. Students undertook exciting projects on a range of themes, breaking new ground and contributing to the documentation of Punjabi culture and history in British Columbia. We make available here those projects for which permissions were given for public sharing.
