Welcome to a Very Short Introduction soapbox. A short talk lasting 15 minutes from an expert in the field. The talk is free and takes place in Blackwell’s Marquee, next to the Sheldonian Theatre.

Lecturer Eleanor Nesbitt gives an introduction to Sikhism’s meanings, beliefs, practices, rituals and festivals. The Sikh religion is the world’s fifth largest religion and followed by 20 million people. Yet many of its followers are mistaken for Muslims. Nesbitt is a specialist in ethnographic investigation of religio-cultural continuity and change in UK Hindu, Sikh, and ethnically diverse Christian communities.
