Mission

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

Anonymity of Review Process
