I. Visram


After completing GPISH in 2019, Visram went on to do his MPhil at the University of Cambridge. His MPhil dissertation focused on how a specific genre of religious poetry from South Asia, the ginān, attained new theological significance within the Indo-Ismaili Muslim community during the modern period. 

In 2020, Visram was awarded the IIS Doctoral Scholarship to pursue a DPhil in Theology and Religion at the University of Oxford. His thesis, provisionally entitled Preservation and Migration of the Indo-Ismaili Ginān Tradition, will investigate how the emergence and global spread of new technologies has affected the preservation and generational transmission of the gināns.
