Indian Ocean in the Age of Empire

The seminar will explore themes of economic activity and change in accounts of society, culture, institutions, and the state across the Indian Ocean littoral, such as the intellectual, cultural, material, and legal underpinnings of transregional mercantile relations; vernacular forms of capital accumulation and incorporation; and the way these practices informed relations of gender, race, and identity across oceanic space.

The seminar is hosted by the Global History of Capitalism Project of the Oxford Centre for Global History.
