The OUCIP Was established to promote innovative knowledge and discourses and to create a community of scholars committed to that goal.
To that end OUCIP proposes to organize an international conference on what is new and innovative in Indian Ocean studies in February 2015 at Hyderabad India.
With increasing concerns for environment, climate change, natural calamities and bio diversity, shlars across disciplines are increasingly moving towards Ocean Studies. The Oceanic turn in sciences and Humanities suggest how critical this turn going to be in shaping a new world order in 21st century.
The recent upsurge in Indian Ocean Studies is part of of this phenomenon. It is obvious that Indian Ocean Studies has moved beyond its traditional ‘marginal studies’ to a global discourse involving Sciences ,Social Sciences and humanities. A growing body of multi disciplinary Studies has expanded its traditional scope and has brought within its fold fascinating new aspects of lives and societies within the Indian ocean region. This new knowledge is going to influence both policy and practice in the entire region in the days to come.
The primary objective of this conference is to bring together scholars who are working in this field to share and to have a critical look at this new body of knowledge.
Scholars, researchers and students are invited to participate by submitting their proposals by 10th November 2014at the following emails:
The scope of the conference is open to all disciplines , but expected emphasis is on the new and innovative, even in what would be considered traditional.
