A conference focused on Indian Ocean Studies will be held in Perth, Western Australia on Friday, 22 November to Saturday, 23 November, 2019.
The theme of the conference will be ‘Trade in the Indian Ocean: Commodities, Ideas, People, Politics’. The conference will be interdisciplinary, with a broad focus on historical and contemporary trade in the Indian Ocean, which encompasses the trade in commodities, ideas (philosophies and religions in particular), people (through the Indian Ocean slave trade for example), and politics (China’s One Belt, One Road initiative for example). We welcome scholars with research interests in these broad areas to submit abstracts for consideration.
