OCEAN TRADE:WINDOW INTO GLOBAL HISTORY
PROFESSOR PEDRO MACHADO THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 12TH – NOON TO 1PM
Professor Machado will discuss how ocean trade provides a window into global history and the global present. He will illustrate this by describing 18th and 19th-century Indian Ocean social, cultural, and economic networks, as explained in his recent publication, Ocean of Trade: South Asian Merchants, Africa, and the Indian Ocean, c. 1750-1850 (Cambridge University Press, 2014).
GSPS discussions begin at noon in the conference room at the Global Center (International Programs, 201 N. Indiana Avenue). Feel free to bring your lunch (coffee, cookies provided).
