FA22: Wednesdays, 1:30-3:30 (by appointment).


Building upon and expanding her undergraduate studies of South Asian Art History at UC Berkeley, where she received her BA from the Department in 2017, Ariana Pemberton (2018) works on the subcontinent in relation to the Indian Ocean littoral (emphasizing the Arabian Sea) during the Medieval period. Her interests focus on medieval globalization, cosmopolitanism, and long-distance exchange. Her transcontinental approach of bringing South Asia, the Persian Gulf, and East Africa into the same conversation, aims to challenge misconceptions and progress the previous, more traditional, and segregated scholarship of the areas.
