October 29 – Nirvikar Singh: “Sikh Studies & Post-Modern Orientalism”

Professor Singh explores how Sikh Studies in the North American academy is engaging with intellectual currents that can broadly be termed “post-modern.” More specifically, he critiques the asymmetrical privileging of Western “post-modern” scholarship on Sikhs against the Sikh community’s own self-understanding. Professor Singh is the Sarbjit Singh Aurora Chair in Sikh and Punjabi Studies and Professor of Economics at UC Santa Cruz.
