Punjabi Sufi poetry offers a rich resource and lens to study histories of bygone eras and contextualize contemporary social and political contexts. Centered around the lives and work of six renowned Punjabi Sufi poets, this course aims to introduce participants to Punjabi's literary forms and traditions, as well as the historic and cultural landscapes in which they were produced.

Starting with the legacy of Baba Farid, to the romanticism embodied in Shah Hussains kafis, mysticism of Sultan Bahus kalaam, modern interpretations of Bulleh Shah's verses, tales of belonging in Waris Shahs poetry and prose, and symbolism in the diwans of Khawaja Ghulam Farid, the course will highlight the continued relevance of the themes of Punjabi Sufi poetry to our existing social and political conditions.
