(44) Lower Mainland Museum Educators Conference 2017: Building Community Relationships, Science World, Vancouver, BC.
 
Lecture: Missing South Asian Contributions to WW1
Lecturer: Steven Purewal
 
Why are certain histories covered, discussed, and inquired about, while others remain hidden? How can educators, teach in a culturally responsive pedagogy that doesn’t recreate old patterns of Euro-centrism, assimilation, and discrimination? Duty, Honour, and Izzat is an integrated exhibit display and set of classroom resources that attempts to answer these questions by revealing the untold stories of the amazing contributions of more than a million Indian soldiers to the WWI war effort and their relationship with Canada.
 
This conference, with support from the Telus World of Science, aims to bring together staff and volunteers from museums, art galleries, science centers, and related organizations to examine lessons learned, discuss best practices, explore strategies to common problems, and network. This conference is aimed at all staff, volunteers (and those of us in-between) who work in or are interested in informal education.

(45) Whose War? Indigenous and Colonial troops during the First World War: A fascinating look at Indigenous and colonial troops during the First World War.
 
“The First World War was a truly global conflict, involving not only the era’s superpowers, but their extended empires. Although often overlooked in military histories, Indigenous troops from Canada, Australia and New Zealand made important contributions in every theatre of war. Soldiers, sailors and airmen also came from European colonies in Africa, South Asia and the Far East — including more than 100,000 soldiers from West Africa, and a million soldiers from India.
 
This thought-provoking evening features leading scholars Timothy Wingard, Santanu Das and Steven Purewal, in a fascinating discussion on the experiences of the First World War’s unsung military personnel.
 
Presented in conjunction with the World at War – International Speaker Series, an annual series of academic events, presented by the Canadian War Museum, to mark the centenary of the First World War. The events, presented in a variety of formats, provide an opportunity for the public to learn from leading Canadian and international experts about the war’s national and global reach, its cost and its legacies.”
