Time: 10 am
This talk draws upon my book on the Asian (Indian) presence in and connections with Africa being published by Columbia University Press in August 2013. The book is primarily focused on the twentieth century, but it has an overarching frame that reaches to the twelfth century world of the Indian Ocean trade re-created by Amitav Ghosh in his book In an Antique Land.
