About the Indian Ocean Working Group:
Since 2014, the Indian Ocean Working Group (IOWG) at GU-Qatar has convened researchers from across the world to build collaborative expertise across the boundaries of traditional area studies to remap the Indian Ocean World through historical circularities of people, culture, knowledge, ideas, commodities, technology, architecture, labor, and capital. Since its inception, the Indian Ocean Studies collective has hosted conferences, symposia, and monthly reading group meetings, bringing together scholars from Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Europe, North America as well as Doha-based institutions.
