Event Alert – Unsettling Sikh and Muslim Conflict: An evening with Katy Sian


Watch live on IHRC TV (www.ihrc.tv) from 6.45pm (GMT+1) on 26 June 2013, a conversation with Katy Sian in which she will be discussing her latest book ‘Unsettling Sikh and Muslim Conflict’

Sian will provide a critical investigation into Sikh and Muslim conflict in the postcolonial setting, drawing upon historical examples of such conflict to explore the way in which the past has been mobilized to tell a story about the future of Sikhs.  Her book uses critical race theory to understand the performance of postcolonial subjectivity in the heart of the metropolis.

Katy P. Sian is a lecturer in sociology at The University of Manchester. She takes a key interest in debates surrounding racism and ethnicity studies, sociology, Sikh studies, Islamophobia, Postcolonialism, Diaspora and South Asian identity.
