7 to 9 December 2015 conference Ocean of Law: Intermixed Legal Systems across the Indian Ocean World, 1550-1950
Legal history in connection with the Indian Ocean world is relatively a new field. Interdisciplinary research and cooperation of scholars working on early-modern and modern history of the broader Indian Ocean world help trace back the journeys of legal ideas and to reconstruct these legal histories. This conference will provide a platform for scholars to discuss and share their work.
