The growth in Sikh studies worldwide has led to greater attention to Sikh history and culture in recent times. Written in honour of W.H. McLeod and N. Gerald Barrier, two pioneers of Sikh studies, this book goes beyond the usual studies of Sikh philosophy and religious practice. The essays explore Sikh historiography, identity, music and ethics, the Sikh diaspora, and the history and the current state of scholarship in the area of Sikh studies. They represent a diverse range of theoretical and methodological approaches to the study of Sikhism, including religious studies, historical studies, anthropology, sociology, gender and ethnic studies, ethnomusicology, diaspora studies, and ritual and performance studies. They also analyse how local experiences confirm yet complicate notions of global and/or diasporic Sikh belief and practice.
This book will be of considerable interest to scholars and students of Sikh studies, history, religion, diaspora studies as well as general readers.
