Sikhs and Gender Conference

Saturday, 21 October 2017 - 10:00am to 3:30pm
Venue: 
Nissan Lecture Theatre

Discovering Sikhism is an annual conference held by the University of Oxford Sikh Society and this year we invite you to our conference with the theme 'Sikhs and Gender' as we seek to reflect on how gender relations shape Sikh and surrounding cultures.

We hope to provide this event as an opportunity to learn, debate and ask questions in the open and academically stimulating environment of Oxford. Topics discussed will include gender discrimination in Punjab, writing a gender history of the Sikh Empire, and how British Sikh masculinities were constructed with regard to the 2016 Anand Karaj protests in Leamington.

Organised by the Univerisity of Oxford Sikh Society.
