Call for papers for the workshop: Sharpening the edges: Instating state and power in Indian Ocean history. An agenda for critical research and teaching
March 15, 2015 - 00:00
The workshop will take place on Monday 17 August 2015 in Leiden, the Netherlands. It will bring together a group of fifteen scholars, some invited and others selected through this call for papers to discuss the state of research and teaching in the burgeoning field of Indian Ocean history. For historical reasons linked to former colonial empires and continued relations between them and their erstwhile colonies, interest in the Indian Ocean is more visible in the fields of teaching and research in institutions in Europe and Asia rather than in the USA. In keeping with the overall Mellon programme, Rethinking Asian Studies, the workshop aims at triangulating a dialogue between Euro-American and South and Southeast Asian scholars.
