The aim of this course is to study the five phases of Sikh history (1800-present), beginning with the Sikh kingdom of Maharaja Ranijit Singh. The emphasis will be on religious and cultural transformation that took place under the British Raj. We will examine a series of socioreligious movements of late 19th and early 20th centuries that gave rise to a modern Sikh identity. Particular attention will be paid to the Singh Sbha and the Akali movements. We will also examine the Sikh situation between 1925 and Independence, and will end the course with the last phase of Sikh history in Independent India (1947-present). Particular attention will be paid to the role of the diaspora Sikh community in establishing Sikhism as one of the great world traditions. We will also examine the impact of 1984 events on Sikh self-understanding and examine the issue of Sikh fundamentalism within the context of the rise of Hindu fundamentalism in the present day India.
