Description
The Indian Ocean region contains a wide variety of cultures and societies, reflecting the regionís diverse history. Well before the rise of the capitalist world system and the contemporary era of globalization, the Indian Ocean region was a thriving trade network connecting peoples and empires from Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and Europe. The module seeks to explore this legacy on the cultures and societies of the Indian Ocean world, focusing in particular on the western rim of the Indian Ocean and using anthropological research methods and referring to existing anthropological studies for these purposes. Over the course of the module students will be introduced to and develop a better understanding of neighbouring populations along the east coast of Africa, in Madagascar, Mauritius and its outer islands, the Comoros, Mayotte, the Seychelles and Zanzibar.
