Sikh Studies Group

Statement of Purpose: 

This Group provides a forum for highlighting the most recent and innovative scholarship in the area of Sikh studies. Our work draws from a broad range of methodological and theoretical approaches — history, postcolonial theory, performance theory, popular culture, philosophy, literary criticism, gender studies, etc. — by both established scholars as well as those new to the field. Seeking a balance between critical theory and substantive content, we seek to call into question key critical terms, challenge established frames of reference, and offer innovative and alternative ways in which Sikhs and Sikhism can be understood and studied in the academy.

Call for Papers: 

The Sikh Studies Group invites papers on any topic related to Sikhism, with any methodological and theoretical approach, but in particular papers that relate to teaching about Sikhism in the Western academy and particularly in the context of the general "Asian Religions" survey course.

We particularly encourage people to suggest papers through this Group as well as others, to promote the development of jointly sponsored sessions and encourage the inclusion of content on the Sikh tradition within other entities in the AAR. Complete paper sessions or roundtable proposals and cosponsored sessions are especially welcome and will be prioritized, and we encourage those with participation from different ranks in the field (from graduate students to faculty) and reflecting diverse perspectives.
