Conversations in Sikh Studies with Dr. Mark Juergensmeyer & Dr. Nirinjan K Khalsa
Dr. Mark Juergensmeyer, in conversation with Dr. Nirinjan Kaur Khalsa of Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, California on the topic of Sikh Studies. Although Sikh Studies is broadly accepted and a number of new chairs have been created, people, in general, are not aware of the diversity and quality of work the professors are enabling. These Webinars aim to enhance the general interest in Sikh Studies.
