Facebook Live Webinar: The caste nexus and women’s liberation (in Punjabi)

Professor Meena Dhanda will engage in a live discussion with a women activists’ group Wajood (Being) on the link between caste and gender.
Saturday 27 June 2020 (1:30pm BST; 6pm IST)

Caste atrocities have intensified and domestic violence is on the increase during the global crisis caused by the pandemic. It was reported a couple of months ago that the Punjab government has found a 21% increase in calls by women to the domestic violence helpline. Is there any link between the caste nexus and the position of women in Punjabi society?

Dr Meena Dhanda (Professor of Philosophy and Cultural Politics) will explain the complex relation between caste and gender in a Facebook Live Webinar.

The discussion followed by an audience Q&A will be mainly conducted in Meena’s mother tongue Punjabi. The title of the programme in transliterated Punjabi is: Jaat Vyavastha Atay Aurat Mukti. The organisers are a group of energetic social activists. Their group uniquely named Wajood (Being/Existence) is convened by a post-graduate from Oxford University, Nikita Azaad.

Set up during the pandemic, this group has commenced a set of open dialogues on identity, sexuality, relationships and much else.

The Colonial and Post Colonial Economic Policies in the Making of Two Punjabs by Prof. Pritam Singh

An appeal from award-winning author, Aanchal Malhotra, for Punjabis to get in touch if you’re interested in this project

An appeal from award-winning author, Aanchal Malhotra, for Punjabis to get in touch if you’re interested in this project:

The Punjabis. I have recently been commissioned to work on a history of Punjabi people. The Punjabis are a complex community, no longer bound by geography, but by an unspoken ethos, and are now spread vastly across the subcontinent and in the diaspora of the world. They are a populace constantly evolving, expanding and enduring; a versatile, adaptable, varied community, whose ethos of Punjabiyat extends beyond a fixed geography.

The Punjabis is a study of the peoples that can trace their origins to the land of the five rivers. As an oral historian, I am interested in the personal and familial stories connected to Punjabi history, identity, ethnicity, race, geography, language, religion, community, diaspora, family life and relationships, culture, literature, folklore, mythology, and food.

Aanchal’s email address is aanchal@aanchalmalhotra.com

Here’s a page from Aanchal’s website, where you can see the kinds of things she writes about – https://www.aanchalmalhotra.com/writing/

Remnants of Partition is an oral history archive and the first study of material culture carried across the border during the Partition. It was shortlisted for the British Academy’s 2019 Nayef Al Rodhan Prize for Global Cultural Understanding, and several other awards in India. Even though the book has been published for a few years now, I am still continuing the research to record stories of objects – however small or large – people carried with them across the border to both sides in 1947.

UKPHA: Virtual Bookclub meetings

Posted in Conferences, Diaspora, News/Information, sikhs by rsmaan on June 16, 2020

A message from UKPHA about their superb webinar series:

As a result of the pandemic restrictions we began to offer the Sikh and Punjabi community a virtual social and cultural opportunity to engage with authors, podcasters, academics and museum curators. We call this a ‘Virtual Bookclub’ and it meets every Monday at 5pm. It provides an opportunity for the community to engage with a heritage expert and discuss their work. It provides an important cultural outlet which is lacking due to social restrictions. Asians are especially affected to COVID19 both medically and as many are living in extended families with older members identified as vulnerable and choose not to leave their homes at all.
Every Monday at 5pm (UK). You can see our forthcoming schedule here : http://www.ukpha.org/bookclub

ANNOUNCEMENT

‘Punjab: Past, Present, Future’
Punjab Research Group Conference
October 26 (Saturday), 2019

The Punjab Research Group has been hosting conferences at least twice a year since 1984 and was established as an inclusive and all-embracing forum to provide a platform for discussion and debate on issues pertaining to East and West Punjab as well as the Punjabi diaspora. During the past 35 years, the PRG has provided space for academics to interact with each other regardless of territorial or disciplinary boundaries. This is especially important given the often-strained relationship between India and Pakistan, which has prevented discussion and dialogue between scholars of East and West Punjab.

Our second conference for 2019 will be held as a one-day event on 26th October (Saturday) at Wolfson College, University of Oxford. We welcome submissions from scholars, academics, young researchers, journalists, artists, and activists for an inter-disciplinary discussion focusing on the theme of ‘Punjab: Past, Present and Future’.

Speakers are invited to give paper-presentations/performances that can cover a broad range of content, including, but not limited to: history, philosophy, politics, gender, religion, environmental studies, economics, diaspora issues, linguistics, literature, poetry, arts, and culture.

We particularly welcome proposals exploring the genesis of Punjab, intersections between the ‘3 Punjabs’, going beyond the 1947 borders: to deepen our perspective on the ‘connected histories’, and to envision interrelated futures, of the region.

Please submit an abstract (200 words) and a brief CV to Raj (RS Mann) at punjabresearchgroup@gmail.com by 30th August 2019. Submissions from grad/postgraduate students are encouraged. Best Presenter Award will be presented to a doctoral student whose presentation is judged to be the best from amongst all the full time doctoral student presentations. The Award includes cash and a certificate.

If you would like to register as a guest for this event, please book a ticket using our online form at (https://tinyurl.com/y3wejlgg). The registration fee is £30 per person which includes refreshments (tea/coffee/snacks) and a sandwich lunch. The registration fee is to be paid at the door only on the day of the event. Booking through eventbrite page is necessary as there are limited seats available.

We look forward to seeing you in Oxford soon!
