Hindu, Sufi, or Sikh: Contested Practices and Identifications of Sindhi Hindus in India and Beyond Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This multi-sited ethnography considers the impact of contested definitions on the experiences and representations of Sindhi Hindus. Ramey recognizes how the dominant definitions of Hinduism, Islam, and Sikhism challenge communities who defy such understandings and analyzes the ways Sindhi Hindus have established their unconventional practices and heritage in the context of their diaspora. By analyzing concrete examples of the creation of a heritage in the context of migration, this book considers the implications of representations of religions for Sindhi Hindus and other similar communities.

About the Author

Steven W. Ramey is Assistant Professor, Department of Religious Studies, University of Alabama.
