June 3, 2016

Anne Murphy presented on her project with theatre troupes in Vancouver on three plays about the Komagata Maru incident. This public project seeks to enrich dialogues about this traumatic incident in the history of Canada, and examines the incident and the plays through the lenses utilized by various playwrights.
After Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made a formal apology for this incident in the Canadian Parliament on May 18, 2016, Professor Murphy issued this letter, signed by many Canadian professors of South Asian Studies.
