  • About

    Harjeet works on aspects of the intersection of Sikh visual cultural and textual hermeneutical traditions. He has an interest in issues pertaining to challenges facing Sikhs via contemporary Diasporic formulations of the Sikh tradition. He is also interested in the early intellectual inheritance of the Sikhs represented in early modern devotional texts. Lastly, and stemming from his background in biology, he works on the intersection of science and biology in modern Sikh religious discourse. Currently, he is working on a project related to the negotiation of public space through the use of religious exegesis and hagiography.
