Conference on Maritime Traditions of Indian and Pacific Oceans, KOCHI
The Centre for Community Knowledge, Ambedkar University Delhi, along with IGNCA and Kerala Tourism organised a conference on Maritime Traditions of Indian and Pacific Oceans, was held at Kochi, two weeks ago. The twin objectives of this Conference are (i) to reassess current knowledge on nautical and maritime traditions in the Indian and Pacific Oceans and (ii) initiate creating a database of maritime routes, sites and oral traditions for collectively narrating the cultural and natural linkages across the Ocean world. I presented a paper on Muziris Project and the Proposed Maritime Museum. The conference delegates visited the Muziris Site also.
