Description: Renisa Mawani charts the story of the Komagata Maru-a steamship that left Hong Kong for Vancouver in 1914 carrying 376 Punjabi immigrants who were denied entry into Canada-to illustrate imperialism's racial, legal, spatial, and temporal dynamics and how oceans operate as sites of jurisdictional and colonial contest.
