Punjabi in BC by Anne Murphy

Over the course of 2019-21, the UBC Punjabi Studies Oral History project is documenting the history of the Punjabi language in BC, and the lives and activities of the people who made it happen, focusing on teachers and institutions where Punjabi has been taught, and on writers who have written in the language and built institutions to support Punjabi language and literature. The project is linked to Dr. Anne Murphy’s ongoing research on modern Punjabi language and literature and involves undergraduate students as interviewers and filmmakers. It is made possible by the Punjabi Studies Oral History Research and Program Development Project, 2019-2021, funded by UBC’s Office of the Vice President for Research and Innovation, through their Program for Undergraduate Research Experience.
