If this course is blocked please sign up for the waitlist section. Students will be placed into the class based off our department priority guidelines. For more information please visit: (Is the class blocked even though there are a few seats that are free? This is normal. Please check our website for what this means.)

Students are not required to have taken PUNJ 300; please contact the instructor to ask about your level. In this class we will read Waris Shah's mid-eighteenth century poem "Heer" in both Gurmukhi (the script utilized for Punjabi in India) and Shahmukhi (the Perso-Arabic script used for Urdu and Persian, which is utilized to write Punjabi in Pakistan). (Students must know one of these scripts to take the course, and will receive instruction in the script not known.) We will contextualize our reading of Heer through selected secondary literature in English on Sufi (Islamic mystical) narrative traditions in the early modern period. Contact the instructor to sign up!
