Nirvikar Singh

NIRVIKAR SINGH
Sarbjit Singh Aurora Chair in Sikh and Punjabi Studies and Professor of Economics, UCSC

Professor Singh explores how Sikh Studies in the North American academy is engaging with intellectual currents that can broadly be termed “post-modern.” More specifically, he critiques the asymmetrical privileging of Western ‘post-modern’ scholarship on Sikhs against the Sikh community’s own self-understanding.
