By- Indu Banga in association with Karamjit K. Malhotra
This volume has been prepared in connection with an international seminar on ‘The State of Sikh and Punjab Historical Studies since Independence’ at Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar in March 2009. Since Professor J.S. Grewal’s work touches upon nearly all the major aspects in the field, to suggest future directions of research each theme is approached through a critical assessment of his work and its comparison with other major writers.
The Themes covered in the seminar include the treatment of Sikh movement, study of Guru Granth Sahib, Sikh polity, martyrdom, caste, gender and sacred space, Sikh literature from the seventeenth to the early nineteenth century, the issue of Sikh identity, contemporary controversies in Sikh studies, general histories of the Sikhs, study of the Punjab region, treatment of colonial and contemporary Punjab, historical study of Punjabi literature, and methodology of history.
