Knowledge Traditions of the Indian Ocean World

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesOrganisation and participation in conferences, workshops, courses, seminars


Evidence indicates that intellectual advances in many fields were the outcome of cross pollination of ideas resulting from travels across the Indian Ocean world. The interchange of ideas across societies and regions created the dynamism necessary for the emergence and sustenance of extensive civilizations and the movement of scholars and students. This workshop is a rediscovery of our Indian Ocean past and there seems no better way to undertake this than through retracing the ideas and the debates that were at the heart of the great intellectual enterprises of the maritime world of Asia. The conference also has a more contemporary agenda.
