Religious identity in South Asia has been shaped within the context of a fraught and contentious history, ranging from issues of “communalism” in colonial India to the question of “radicalization” and political Islam in post 9/11 Pakistan. Yet, religious practice has developed in relation to longstanding sacred geographies and networks in South Asia, intersecting with modern identity formations in unusual and unexpected ways. In this conference, we will explore the relationship between religion, identity, historical networks and sacred landscapes to understand the formation of religious thought and practice in Pakistan. Through a multidisciplinary approach, this conference aims to cultivate a discussion of transnationalism, sectarianism, marginality, inter and intra-religious dynamics. We will engage with the work of scholars and artists from Pakistan, Europe and the United States concerned with a variety of religious groups in Pakistan, and the complex ways that religious practice has been shaped through interactions between distinct identities, not only along the lines of religion, but also gendered and social difference. While focusing on Pakistan, we hope to challenge prevalent assumptions about the current configuration of borders and explore deeper and continually relevant connections between distinct religious spaces and practices in South Asia.
