Reading the Indian Ocean
November 30, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm EST
On November 30, the Georgetown University Department of English will convene a group of leading scholars from around the world for a seminar on how studying the Indian Ocean and the Indian Ocean region enables understanding of the vital issues of culture, narrative, and projection of power across national boundaries. The speakers at the conference will emphasize both the importance of large-scale, oceanic thinking in the humanities, and the vital place of the humanities in the construction of knowledge about the world.
This event is co-sponsored by the Department of English, the Office of Global Engagement, the Office of the College Dean, and the Georgetown University India Initiative.
