Research Interests

Dr. Fenech’s special expertise lies in the field of Punjabi and Sikh Studies. His publications include three books, the most recent of which is: The Sikh Ẓafar-nāmah of Guru Gobind Singh: A Discursive Blade in the Heart of the Mughal Empire (2013). He is also co-editor of The Oxford Handbook of Sikh Studies (2014). Professor Fench notes that fringe benefits of being a “Sikhologist” include the opportunity to sample the many delicacies for which the Punjab is noted. A particular favorite of his is a small bitter gourd known as karela.
