This collection consists of recordings of interviews on six DVDs and a folder of consent forms signed by the participants
of the Indian Diaspora Oral History Project, which was sponsored by the Silicon Valley Center for Global Innovation and Immigration
(SVCGII), part of SJSU Global Studies, in 2009.
The "Indian Diaspora Oral History Project” was part of a larger project called the “Indian Diaspora Project.” It was conducted
by Dr. Rajiv Khanna of the Department of History at San Jose State University as Oral History Lead with the help of Matt Bell
as Oral History Coordinator. It was sponsored by the Silicon Valley Center for Global Innovation and Immigration (SVCGII),
part of SJSU Global Studies (now known as the Silcon Valley Center for Global Studies). For this research project, Dr. Rajiv
Khanna interviewed fourteen Indian immigrants who arrived in the California Bay Area from the 1940s to the 1960s and videotaped
these interviews. In the interviews, these immigrants speak about their journey to the United States, family, professional
life, education, and social and cultural experiences.
