A three-day conference at the newly opened Aga Khan Centre in Kings Cross will explore the diverse and pluralistic nature of Muslim cultures in the Indian Ocean. The conference brings together experts from a range of disciplines and backgrounds, including archaeologists, historians, sociologists, anthropologists, geographers, and scholars of related disciplines to explore the cultural encounters across the Indian Ocean down the centuries.
Like the Mediterranean, the Indian Ocean is a rich cultural contact zone whose historical development has been formed by pluralistic societies within the region and by Islamic cultures from around the world.
