On Saturday, November 8 2014, SAFAR: The Sikh Feminist Research Institute hosted a one-day conference, Our Journeys 2014: To Know Is Not Enough, at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Building on the tremendous success of past, this academic conference continued to explore a range of topics, relationships, disciplines and voices through a Sikh feminist lens. Our Journeys 2014: To Know Is Not Enough  tried to cultivate a spectrum of critical dialogue, engage in collective examining of the status quo and highlight a diverse range of research methodologies throughout the day. This conference was about the intersection of activism and academics, action and knowledge. Following the success of the conferences held at the University of Toronto (inaugural, 2011) and at the University of British Columbia (2012), SAFAR is proud to present Our Journeys 2014: To Know Is Not Enough with the continued goal of exploration into Sikh feminist agency and praxis.
