Punjabs@70 Punjab Research Group Conference

Convener: Professor Pritam Singh

The Punjab Research Group has been hosting conferences at least twice a year since 1984, and was established as an inclusive and all- embracing forum for discussion and debate on issues pertaining to the East and West Punjab as well as the Punjabi diaspora. During the past 33 years, the PRG has provided space for academics to interact with each other regardless of territorial or disciplinary boundaries. Our second conference for 2017 will be held as a one-day event on 28 October in Oxford.  The conference will provide a platform to academics, young researchers, journalists, artists, and activists for an inter-disciplinary discussion focusing on the theme of ‘Punjabs@70 Punjab: Past, Present and Future’.

My special thanks to every one of you for your valuable presence and participation.
