Research

Current book projects include the following: (i) Untimely Encounters (initially delivered as the Jordan Lectures in Comparative Religion, SOAS, 2009), which looks at new ways of thinking about conceptual encounter between Indian and Western traditions, specifically focusing on the engagement between key categories of Sikh thought and praxis in related to thinkers such as Deleuze; (ii)  Mourning Sovereignties  combines political theory with critical religion analysis to look at various Sikh discourses in relation to public space and moves in a directions that were signaled in my earlier work; (iii) Violence and non-Violence in Sikhism ;  (iv) Sikh Philosophy of Religion

I’m also a founding editor of the journal Sikh Formations: Religion Culture and Theory (Routledge ) and serve on the editorial boards of Culture and Religion  and Religions of South Asia.  I also supervise a number of graduate students working at the intersections of Sikh studies, Religious Studies and Cultural Theory.
