Sikh Formations Podcast-Webinar-Blog is a forum where you can access interviews, talks and debates with scholars, activists and artists working broadly in the field of Sikh and Punjab Studies
The aim of Sikh Formations Podcast-Blog-Webinar is to widen access of scholarly research in the field of Sikh and Punjab studies and make it available to the wider public.
Combining three separate channels of communication (Podcast, Blog and Webinar) it is our hope that scholars and students will find this a useful forum for engaging new audiences. They will also be able to use podcast episodes, blogs and webinars as supplementary teaching materials. Our aim is to facilitate access to key topics in Sikh and Punjab studies for students, activists, artists, scholars and the general public.
PODCAST: Podcast episodes will consist of an interview, conversation or debate with a scholar who has recently, or in the past, published an article with something to say to the general public. Within each episode one of our editors or guest editors will engage the scholar about her or his article through a series of questions, with the aim of translating difficult ideas into a language understandable by a wide ranging public.
WEBINARS: The webinar is essentially a research forum for scholars to present new research in Punjab & Sikh studies (or beyond). Each meeting will consist of two main presentations (30-40 min) followed by a book colloquium. We invite graduate students, established scholars and independent researchers to send us abstracts or titles of papers they may wish to present.
BLOG: We welcome blogs from independent researchers, activists, artists and scholars on any topic related directly or tangentially to the field of Sikh and Punjab studies, but especially written pieces on current fast-moving issues that require a speedier mode of communication. Blogs should be between 300 and 1500 words long.
