This one-week workshop for PhD scholars aims to introduce the concept of vernacular cosmopolitanism and Sufi culture by studying the religious and cultural traditions of the Indus Valley in India and Pakistan. The intensive workshop will help research students from various disciplines to grasp major concepts related to the  making of the Indus Valley’s vernacular religious practices and rituals, its oral, print, visual, sonic and material cultures and much more. It will also acquaint them with Western and Indian academic debates in the field and construction of canons.

The participants will get a hands-on training to understand and deploy different approaches to understand these vernacular traditions and how they are important constituents of a cosmopolitan culture. The historical, oral and textual literature of the region will be examined in addition to ethnographic fieldwork to review the Indus Valley’s material and visual cultures as well as different forms of rituals and everyday practices. The Workshop will be led by scholars in the field of history, literature and anthropology specializing in the three regions – Kashmir, Punjab and Sindh – that constitute the broader territorial extent of the Indus Valley.

Workshop conveners : Prof. Anjali Gera Roy (IIT Kharagpur), Dr. Yogesh Snehi, Dr. B. R. Ambedkhar (University Delhi), Dr. Javaid Iqbal Bhat (Kashmir University, Srinagar).
