The Research Centre for Luso-Asian Studies (CIELA) is pleased to invite all those interested to the Webinar “ETHNOGRAPHIES OF THE LUSOPHONE INDIAN OCEAN “, being held on November 11, 2021, 6:30pm, via Zoom.

This workshop discusses multiple ethnographic explorations on the Lusophone Indian Ocean. Geographically and culturally connecting the Indian Ocean worlds with the Asia Pacific region, from Macau and Timor to Mozambique and East Africa, the Portuguese presence across Africa and Asia has left significant cultural heritages and a diversity of archival traces.

This workshop intends to introduce the participants to the lusophone Indian Ocean, a conceptual frame here explored navigating across a plurality of materialities and testimonies. Following the 3rd speaker’s presentation, a Q&A session with attending online audience will be held (approx. 20-30 min).

Prof. Pamila Gupta will talk about three different ongoing projects: Goan photographers and tailors in Zanzibar, Baroque heritage in Zanzibar and a Goan sea artist (Subodh Kerkar, Goa).

Prof. Caio Araújo will present his research on historical ethnographies and archives of the Lusophone Indian Ocean: ethnography of/in archives in Goa and Mozambique.

Prof. Pedro Pombo will share his research on the Goan diaspora in Tanzania, with an ethnography of material heritages, spaces and objects that condense stories of migration in Goa, Dar es Salaam and Zanzibar.
