Indian Ocean in Global Perspective: Mobility, Exchange, and Transformations in the Indian Ocean World
The Oberoi Distinguished Roundtable, sponsored by a generous gift from the Oberoi Family Foundation, convenes eminent scholars whose works have engaged with the networks of exchange in the overland and maritime regions known collectively as the Silk Roads. The panelists will pre-circulate papers and discuss their unique research goals and analytical approaches to the historical movement of people, commodities, ideas, and capital across the Indian Ocean, and explain how these exchanges may inform our contemporary understandings of world history and emerging globalization.
