Stanford University

The Sikholars: Sikh Graduate Student Conference seeks to bring Sikhs and non-Sikhs working on Sikh-related issues to an annual conference that unites a breadth of graduate expertise. From academia, to health, law, and business entrepreneurship, the conference will bring together a wide array of disciplines and scholarly interests to create an institutionalized channel to present papers on research, and informal circuits or networks for continued discussion. Inviting submission of abstracts, the two-day conference elicits proposals on various aspects of Sikh economic, political, health, cultural, and social life.

Purpose of the Conference: Sikh Graduate Student Conference seeks to create a truly innovative and imaginative conference. By bringing together promising students in a truly multi-disciplinary fashion, we seek to incubate promising research by engaging various activists and scholars in the community together.

Sikholars: Sikh Graduate Student Conference invites papers for a conference to be held in the Stanford University on February 20th, 2010.  Travel grants, hotel accommodations, and necessary arrangements will be rewarded to all authors of accepted papers.

The scope of the conference is global; papers may concentrate on particular localities or regions, or they may present cross- regional comparisons and convergences. We encourage submissions from a broad range of disciplines, methodologies, and perspectives.  All topics are open ? from medicine, to law, to history, sociology, and all Sikh-related topics in-between.

Proposals for individual papers should be no more than 500 words in length and may be sent by email, with a current CV, to info@sikholars.org or uploaded at the conference website, http://www.sikholars.org.  Selected papers may be published.
Submission Deadline:  Please submit abstracts by November 15, 2009.
Please send all inquiries to info@sikholars.org.
