Sikh Scholar Gurinder Singh Mann is Co-founder of the SRC
The annual international Sikh Research Conference (SRC) has been established because there has been a serious neglect of Sikh Studies in the UK. Whilst there are many Sikh scholars studying and researching Sikh Studies, the subject is not highly recognised or represented at a national level in the UK.
Call for papers
The conference will bring together presentations from leading researchers in the field of Sikh Studies and associated scholars in other fields. Scholars, researchers and academics are encouraged to submit an abstract of between 500 and 750 words which highlight research on any of the following themes:
- Sikh Musicology
- Scripture and manuscripts- New research on Sikhs Scriptures and any challenging assessments of Canon formation
- Diaspora and Identity
- 2014 will mark 100 years since the outbreak of the First World War and papers related to the Sikh contribution would be welcomed.
- 2014 will also commemorates 30 years since the attack on the Golden Temple.
- Papers highlighting the relationship between Colonial Punjab and the Sikhs.
