Since 2010, the Sikholars: Sikh Graduate Student Conference has been bringing together advanced graduate students working on a variety of subjects related to the study of Sikhs. Join us this year in 2023, as the conference returns in-person at Stanford University.
The conference has had the honor of hosting scholars and graduate students from Pakistan to Canada, India to France from over 25 universities. We are excited to welcome all as we return for the 12th annual conference on February 18, 2023.
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 Punjabi films, we encourage the widest possible range of those pursuing graduate studies on Sikh or Punjab-related topics. Submit your proposal by Wednesday, January 11, 2023.
We are currently seeking proposals. 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.
Last time, 150+ community members came to participate and converse. Be part of the conversation and mark your calendars for this unique experience.
