The Indian Ocean World:
Taking Stock, Looking Ahead


When

January 28-30, 2021

Where

Online

As the field of Indian Ocean Studies grows in both scope and ambition, we would benefit from a regular conference – in part to foster collaborations between different scholars working on the area and in part for all us to see how the field is growing and changing. To this end, as scholars of the region, we announce an inaugural meeting to take stock and look ahead. Bringing together scholars at various stages in their careers, including doctoral students, the panels and breakout sessions of this conference are meant to allow us to develop collaboratively a sharper sense of what the stakes are in our shared enterprise as researchers and teachers.
