Sikhs Across Borders

Transnational Practices of European Sikhs

Sikhs Across Borders
Not available
Sikhs Across Borders is the first study to explore patterns of transnational practices among
European Sikhs, with particular focus on the links between the Sikhs in Europe,
Punjab (the 'home-land') and within a global Sikh community. The book
illustrates how local and transnational spheres coexist and interact in a
multitude of social and cultural practices and discourses among European Sikhs
past and present.
Based on new empirical research Sikhs Across Borders book explores how religion continues to play a significant role in the daily lives of European Sikhs and is important for their maintenance of links
with the homeland, as well as Sikhs in other parts of the world. The team of international contributors show how Sikhs are shaping new self-representations and identity constructions through a multitude of transnational practices on the individual, national and global level, such as
marriages, pilgrimage narratives, and the use of the internet and new media. Further transnational practices examined include religious learning and teaching practices and responses to political events in the diaspora.
