FACSAPP attempts to bring to public view a discussion around AUD Faculty publications, project outputs and working papers.

It is an effort directed towards making sense of research within the University space.

This book explores the organic lives of popular Sufi shrines in contemporary Northwest India. It traverses the worldview of shrine spaces, rituals and their complex narratives, and provides an insight into their urban and rural landscapes in the post-Partition (Indian) Punjab.This work will be useful to those engaged in interdisciplinary research in history, social anthropology, historical sociology, cultural studies, historical geography, religion and art history, as well as those interested in Sufism and its shrines in South Asia.
