Sikhs In Southeast Asia: Negotiating An Identity

This multidimensional study of Sikhs in Southeast Asia is based on work done at the 2008 Singapore ISEAS conference. The Sikh diaspora of the last 150 years which developed in British-held areas, has developed into a settled Sikh presence in much of Southeast Asia. These 14 specialist papers explore: Sikh migration and settlement 1870s-1950s; global, comparative, and Southeast Asian perspectives on Sikh identity and presence; separate studies of Sikhs in Brunei Darussalam, Myanmar, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, and Singapore, also on Malaysia (using the cartoon presentations of the redoubtable Lat); on war memories and representations; and a final paper on Sikh women’s absence from community leadership in Malaysia.
