INFORMATION:

The Indian Ocean Region (IOR) has always been a region subject to change. Famous port cities in the Indian Ocean rose and fell on the changing fortunes of empires, climate change, new trading routes, and plagues. Religions and political alliances spread and contracted in much the same way due to similar factors. Yet despite these changes, the IOR consistently re-emerged as an important conduit for ‘trade’ in the broadest sense of the term (trade in goods, ideas, people, and politics).

Now the IOR is facing new challenges and opportunities including Covid 19, even as underlying continuities seem to remain. The Indian Ocean is emerging as the epicentre of political and cultural change as the region witnesses shifts in nation-state priorities as well as social and cultural networks. The IOR is also experiencing significant economic growth and development with many countries vying for regional power and influence. The IOR is fast becoming the focus of increased research and scholarship as we try to navigate the origins and trajectory of these changes in this era of uncertainty.

The biennial Indian Ocean Studies Conference provides an important venue for researchers, scholars, policy-makers, students and the general public to meet and share their thoughts and ideas on this significant region. The conference will facilitate presentations and discussions focusing on the sub-themes: maritime history and trade, education and communities, faith and culture, disease and disease control, environmental studies, and defence and strategic studies.

A variety of interactive conference opportunities will be provided so delegates can mix, network and learn from each other in a stimulating and dynamic setting. ​

ORGANISED BY:

The conference is organised collaboratively by staff in the Humanities and Social Sciences Faculty at Sheridan Institute of Higher Education and scholars from the WA Maritime Museum, and the Australian Association for Maritime History.
