North American Hinduism Group

Statement of Purpose: 

This Group was established in 2006 for the purpose of drawing greater scholarly attention to Hinduisms outside of South Asia. Though it will focus on North America, the Group also welcomes relevant research on Hinduisms in other non-Indian contexts. The Group has three main goals:

To study and describe Hinduisms in North America and related diaspora contexts

To develop a more sophisticated understanding of what distinguishes these Hinduisms from those in South Asia

To nurture thoughtful debate on the methodologies unique to and appropriate for their study

Call for Papers: 

This Group seeks paper and panel submissions that advance the study of Hinduisms in North America and related diaspora contexts, develop a more sophisticated understanding of what distinguishes these Hinduisms from those in South Asia, and nurture thoughtful debate on the methodologies unique to and appropriate for their study. We welcome any paper or panel submissions that might fulfill these goals.
Additionally, we are interested in panels and papers addressing these more specific topics:

• Racialization of Hindus in North America

• Visual and material culture (for possible cluster of cosponsor with Religion, Film, and Visual Culture and Religion, Media, and Culture groups): In addition to paper or panel submissions the NAH Group is interested in curating an exhibit of material and visual culture and seeks recommendations for objects, artifacts, and media for inclusion.

• Green Hinduisms: Hinduism and the environment in North America
