Punjab Research Group Conference

June 27, 2014 - June 28, 2014


It is the Punjab Research Group’s 30th Anniversary. To celebrate this milestone the Punjab Research Group have teamed up with Dr Churnjeet Mahn, University of Surrey, and are planning a two-day conference at Coventry University. The conference will be funded by the AHRC project, ‘A Punjabi Palimpsest: Cultural Memory and Amnesia at the Aam Khas Bagh’. This project has looked at the conservation of Mughal-era buildings in Sikh-dominated Punjab, especially in terms of contested heritage and memory. A website connected to the project can be found here: www.thegtroad.com

The conference theme is Memory, which will allow us to reflect on thirty years of Punjab Studies. A selection of the papers presented during this conference will be published in a special edition of the Journal of Punjab Studies and edited by Pippa Virdee and Churnjeet Mahn.
