The School of Oriental and African Studies

The School of Oriental and African Studies

The Canada-UK Foundation supported the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) in hosting a conference on iconic Canadian author MG Vassanji.

Vassanji’s stories are quintessentially Canadian, exploring themes of migration, identity and cosmopolitanism.

The conference at SOAS created a space in which these and other ideas in his work could be considered, discussed and expanded.
