Indian Ocean Art Histories: Goa; Bombay; Kochi
The 2019 Judith Stronach Travel Seminar focused on the Indian Ocean, the third largest water body and the world’s oldest cultural continuum that has facilitated the mobility of people, objects, and ideas over millennia. Students in the seminar mapped the ways in which such oceanic networks also shaped the global history of art from the early modern period to the contemporary by focusing on three key moments in this longue durée history: Goa in the early modern period, Bombay (now Mumbai) under British rule, and the contemporary in Kochi via the 2018 Kochi-Muziris Biennale. In this day-long public symposium, participants of the seminar will present their research papers. The Travel Seminar was made possible due to a generous gift to the Department of History of Art from the Estate of Judith Lee Stronach.
