Kiranjot Kaur is an academic, writer and educator that currently resides in Toronto, Canada. She is a researcher that finds strength and inspiration through Sikh principles like Sangat and Seva and strives to reinvigorate academic spaces with the same divinely inspired passion.
Kiranjot is pursuing her Ph.D. at York University. She holds an M.A. in Religion, Culture, and Global Justice from Wilfrid Laurier University and a B.A. in the study of Religion from the University of Toronto. Kiranjot has a keen interest in higher education and curriculum development. She is particularly interested in how we can genuinely implement critical pedagogies into our public educational institutions. Her doctoral research focuses on bodies of literature relating to post-secular and postcolonial theories and ideas in the philosophy of religion.
Currently, she is writing her first book on postsecularity and spirituality from a Sikh lens and is actively publishing essays through other open-access platforms. She is also the Executive Director for the Decolonized Library Project, an interfaith collective that hosts an online community archive for marginalized peoples. Kiranjot is also a mentor and guide to Sikh youth in Ontario.
In her free time, when she is not writing or teaching, she enjoys baking, spending time with her family, and planning her next travel adventure.
