International Students' Workshop on Sufism in South Asia: A View from Delhi
This Workshop is devoted to introducing approach to Sufism through close reading of medieval texts and observing significant Sufi spaces in the dargahs (Sufi Shrines) located in Delhi. The Workshop will focus on two Sufi traditions, namely, the Chishtiyya and Naqshbandiyya , that memorialize Muslim sacred spaces, although in significantly different ways, in India.
The Goettingen team will also visit Sufi Shrines in Delhi.
