  3. Student Research on Sikhism

    Student Research on Sikhism by Dr MichaelJTilley » Mon Sep 04, 2017 8:00 am Dear all, My name is Dr Michael Tilley, and I have just been appointed as a Lecturer in Asian Religions at York St John University in the UK. As part of my new role, I have been tasked with leading and developing a second-year module on YSJU's BA in Theology & Religious Studies entitled 'Sikh Traditions'. The remit I have been provided states that students enrolled on this module will be assessed in part by producing a 'research file' on Sikhs in the diaspora - that is, those living outside of the Punjab. A significant part of this includes reviewing the academic literature available on the various challenges that diasporic Sikhs encounter in such contexts, to then compare this to personal testimonies of Sikhs that they have actively engaged with. In order to acquire the latter, I have arranged for a few visiting speakers to attend my classes, alongside organizing a trip to a Gurdwara in the Yorkshire area where the university is based. However, I intend to supplement this with allowing the students to effectively 'interview' a Sikh via email correspondence. I am writing this current post to enquire if there is anyone registered on this forum who might be willing to communicate with some of my students via email over this upcoming academic semester (September-December). I am in the process of producing a full briefing which includes terms of participation, but for now I can say that it would involve responding to a few questions from undergraduate students on topics that may, for example, include identity maintenance or experiences of prejudice. The only requirements of prospective participants is that they: (I) identify as a Sikh, (2) are above the age of eighteen years, (3) live in a diasporic context (i.e. Britain or Canada). If you think you might be interested, or would like more information, feel free to email me at m.tilley@yorksj.ac.uk. My working hours are 9-5 Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. If you are suspicious of this post, please see the following link: https://www.yorksj.ac.uk/schools/humanities-religion--philosophy/staff-profiles/theology-and-religious-studies/dr-michael-tilley/dr-michael-tilley.html. This is my rather nascent profile (I only started my work at YSJU a week ago), although any of the staff members in the Department of Theology and Religious Studies can corroborate my existence and integrity. I will soon have an office phone up-and-running, and will post the number here when I do. Kindest regards, Michael Dr MichaelJTilley New User Posts: 2 Joined: Mon Sep 04, 2017 7:34 am

  13. Meera Dewan’s Dhun Mein Dhyan highlights the message of the Guru Granth Sahib Today inter-faith dialogue is perceived as essential to achieving peace and the Guru Granth Sahib is a treatise that functions as a model of inter-faith communication. The Granth, with its collection of devotional hymns and poetry of Sikh Gurus along with bhakts and Islamic dervishes, has only one message to convey and that is: “The Creator created many forms from the same clay Flawless is the clay pot; flawless, the Potter.” Well-known filmmaker Meera Dewan’s latest film, Dhun Mein Dhyan: Meditations in Music in the Guru Granth Sahib conveys just this. It is a multi-faith, multi-lingual dialogue in poetry, set to ragas. Full article available at http://www.thehindu.com/entertainment/movies/contemporary-and-relevant/article19708603.ece

  17. Sikh Mentoring Program

    SikhMentors is a US based career mentoring program that matches high school students with mentors in the industry of their choice. The initiative helps to bridge the gap between students and the real world. Are you looking for someone to help with the university application process? Are you looking for help in choosing a career? The pilot program is designed to help high school students with the university application process, guide them through university entrance exams (SAT, MCAT, LSAT etc.) and support them in finding meaningful careers. Students are paired with mentors working or studying in fields such as engineering, law, medicine etc. Mentors and mentees will discuss upfront the expectations and needs for the program. They will meet at least once a quarter for a year (in person or virtually) to discuss issues such as entrance exams, scholarships, qualifications, skills, career paths etc. For mentors, it is a chance to give back to the community and help students grow in their field. For mentees, it is a great opportunity to learn from active professionals how to: Prepare for university entrance exams and fill university applications (essays, extra-curricular activities, recommendation letters etc.) Explore career options, and Acquire skills and training in your field of choice Source - http://sikhmentors.com
