Outbound/In: Racialized Bodies and the (Un)seen Borders of Belonging

Project: Internal Grant

Project Details


Despite a century-long history of migration, the Sikhs have remained an underserved and underrepresented community in the United States (US). As a collaborative and participatory film project, Outbound/In develops multiple SDGs through its dual focus on global routes and local roots of Sikh identity and its racialization both in India and the US. It explores the multiple dimensions of international migration of Sikhs from Punjab, India through audio-visual storytelling in order to foreground authentic voices from the community. The team will build an expansive interdisciplinary framework through which they will analyze international migration, transnational communities, and underlying factors that marginalize immigrant bodies (SDG#4, #5, #10, #16 and #17).
