Punjab Research Group

PRG Meeting – 31 October 2009

Posted in PRG Meetings by Pippa on September 14, 2009

The next Punjab Research Group meeting will take place on 31st October 2009 at De Montfort University, Leicester.

Speakers include:

Kathryn Lum, (European University Institute, Florence) ‘A community at a crossroads: a case study of the Ravidassia Sangat in Barcelona’

Navtej Purewal, (University of Manchester) ‘Articulations of Caste through Religion: Codes of Hegemony and Invisibility in West Punjab’

In the past few months, the issue of caste in Punjab has been making the headlines for a number of reasons. Therefore, it seems that this would be a good opportunity to discuss the issue of caste in contemporary/historical Punjab(s). If you are currently working in this area and would like to share your research findings with the PRG then please contact me. Please could you also circulate this note to anyone else you think might be interested in presenting a paper.

If you would like to attend please email me: pvirdee@dmu.ac.uk
