Reclaiming Diasporicity: Emergent Subjectivities in Sikh, Punjabi and South Asian Contexts
September 29 – 30, 2018
This workshop brings scholars of Sikh and South Asian studies from across the disciplines to explore new ways of reimagining single 'diasporicity' and further expand the conceptual toolbox with which to refine and redeploy the notion of diaspora beyond its function as a sociological descriptor.
The purpose of the conference is to reconsider our understanding of the "diasporic"as emergent subjectivity, or as articulating a form of life with the impulse and capacity to create alternative modes of becoming and being through lived experiences, rather than merely being subject to the kind of binaries that mark conventional notions of diaspora.
