Prasad, Sheetal (2020) [Re]Archive: South Asian Narratives in Canadian History. Masters thesis, OCAD University.

Item Type: Thesis
Creators: Prasad, Sheetal
Abstract:

This thesis paper documents the process and research into South Asian history through the arts-informed research concept of “A/R/Tography”. It focuses on themes of memory, haunting, and the curriculum by using a collection of digital and analogue artworks exhibited in a virtual catalogue that will serve as an open-source file for Ontario’s high school teachers and students. Furthermore, this thesis raises questions about historical and minority representations within the Canadian context by questioning Canada’s reputation as being a multicultural mosaic. To this end, this exhibition and thesis paper focus on the South Asian perspective within Canadian history and more specifically on Ontario’s Peel District School Board’s vital need to reform its high school history curriculum to include minority and marginalized voices.
