Call for Papers

Since 2010, Sikholars has been bringing together advanced graduate students working on a variety of subjects related to the study of Sikhs and Panjab. Pairing community organization with Stanford University’s Center for South Asia, the conference has hosted students from Pakistan to Canada, India to France from over 25 universities. We are excited to bring this venture to the East Coast in conjunction with Princeton University.

We are pleased to announce our call for papers. With topics ranging from Gurmukhi fonts in Unix Coding to sex-selective abortion, from Nihangs in the court of Ranjit Singh to diasporic literature, from the Khalistan movement to the North American bhangra circuit, from Sikh sculpture and architecture to representations of masculinity in Panjabi films, we encourage the widest possible range of those pursuing graduate studies on Sikh and Panjab related topics.

The conference will be held at Princeton University on Saturday, October 4, 2014. It is sponsored by the Office of Religious Life and South Asian Studies at Princeton University and the Jakara Movement.

Proposals for individual papers should be no more than 250 words in length and may be uploaded at the conference website, with a current CV/resume.

Abstracts Submission Deadline: August 24, 2014.

Be part of the conversation and mark your calendars for this unique experience.

We will have registration available beginning August 17th.  Be on the look out and we look forward to hosting you all soon at Sikholars 2014 NY.
