2014 marks the centennial anniversary of the arrival and subsequent forcible return of the Komagata Maru and the ship’s 376 Sikh, Muslim, and Hindu migrants. This workshop is guided by themes of ‘charting imperial itineraries’ and ‘unmooring the Komagata Maru’.

Framed by three overarching academic focuses – global imperial histories, local and global encounters of imperialism, and transnational legacies of the Komagata Maru across time – this workshop aims to explore a number of interdisciplinary and trans-disciplinary narratives that relate to the Komagata Maru’s history and experience.
