UFV Press Release on Research Day 2013

UFV celebrates student research with poster day and awards
A SAMPLER OF PROJECTS:
Shea Wind — Indo-Canadian Studies
White-Canada Forever: A Look Through The Eyes of the Vancouver Daily Province Newspaper 1906–1915
Where some posters were filled with graphs and lengthy text explanations, Shea Wind’s posterboard was instead filled with photocopies of newspaper headlines.
“This is pretty much a representation of what I did for the Centre for Indo-Canadian Studies in the fall semester,” Wind said. “I transcribed articles from the Vancouver Daily Province newspaper, focusing on Indo-Canadian immigration to British Columbia and the racism that arose from that.”
These racist undertones are easy to see in the headlines he’s picked out to include as part of the presentation: The headline “Will Arrest Hindu Who Is Alleged To Have Voted” stares at the viewer in all caps, and suspicion seems to be a prevalent theme.
“There are definitely some stories that shock you, that this could happen in the last 100 years. It shows just how brutal British Columbians could be to outsiders during this time period,” Wind noted.
This project was one he undertook while working for the Centre for Indo-Canadian Studies last fall.
“I loved the whole project,” Wind said.
Parveer Singh Ghuman worked for the Centre for Indo Canadian Studies in July 2012 as a student intern from Panjab University. Ghuman is a student of Law at Panjab University in Chandigarh, India. This paper is his work on human trafficking under the supervision of Professor Yvon Dandurand of UFV.
