Abstract [en]

In attempting to carve out a place for themselves in local and global contexts, young Sikhs mobilize efforts to construct, choose, and emphasize different aspects of religious and cultural identification depending on their social setting and context. Presenting current research on young Sikhs with multicultural and transnational life-styles and how they interpret, shape and negotiate religious identities, traditions, and authority on an individual and collective level, Young Sikhs in a Global World is the first volume of its kind devoted to the religion of young Sikhs in the global community.

With a particular focus on the experiences of second generation Sikhs as they interact with various people in different social fields and cultural contexts, the book is constructed around three parts: “family and home”, “public display and gender”, and “reflexivity and translations”. New scholarly voices and established academics present qualitative research and ethnographic fieldwork and analyse how young Sikhs try to solve social, intellectual and psychological tensions between the family and the expectations of the majority society, between Punjabi culture and religious values.
