Call for Proposals
This Group invites papers from a wide range of methodological and theoretical approaches on the following topics:
Papers should reflect a balance of theoretical cogency and substantive content. Preference will be given to papers relating to the topics listed above, though papers addressing other areas of Sikh ways of being will also be considered. Complete papers session or roundtable proposals and cosponsored sessions are particularly welcome, especially those with participation from different ranks in the field (from graduate students to faculty) and diverse perspectives.
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.
