What is the presentation about?
This webinar will offer an overview of why and how the events of 1984 transpired in the way that they did.
The presentation will then explore the symbology of "1984" as a term that holds resonance and power in the collective psyche today, and what connections can be drawn from the events to the wider discrimination against Sikhs both past and present.
Using various mediums, including academic sources and art, the webinar will draw on a wider array of sources and portrayals to connect the events to the younger generation and look to the future.
