On Sunday 1 July, the Sikh Education Council held it’s summer seminar for 2018 in Hitchin, North Hertfordshire. The multi-talented Narvir Singh presented a paper titled, ‘Sikhs and Culture: importance, identification, and classification’ that was warmly received by over thirty people in attendance. As with all of our quarterly seminars, the paper was presented in a draft format to allow for comments to be taken on board by the author and it will now be published in the Summer 2018 edition of ‘Sikh Sunehan‘.

The seminar was followed by an informal barbecue making good use of the extended sunshine that the UK has experienced recently. By all accounts the event was a much-needed opportunity to catch up with SEC peers and the afternoon had a ‘good vibe’ that facilitated this. Accordingly this is likely to become an annual event for students, researchers and patrons of the organisation!
