Link to Dr. Meier’s exhibition?
What is behind the logo of te Indian Ocean Exchanges?
Thank you for this amazing opportunity and presentation.
What is the length of the trips?
A very exciting program. What role might you see for museum's in this program beyond being the host for the meetings?
Will the project consider the Mascarene islands and European-non-European exchanges?
The references are solely due is we are being seriously considered. Is that right?
I have a Question regarding the eligibility in Terms of Location - if I'm currently based in Europe, but did my Research and Fieldwork in the (Arabian/Persian) Gulf, and also have professional Networks/contacts there, can I still apply?
I realize this might be difficult at this stage, but can you be more specific about our activities in travel destinations? Do you envision them as symposia?
Thank you for the session! Is it possible to know how many participants might be selected?
Thank you for your presentation. Is there opportunity for financial aid?
Thank you for the session Professor Um. My question is: How many students will you be accepted for the program?
Dr Estjer Schmidt
Is 1900 a firm end point? I am looking at a topic that starts in the 17th century and end has an important aspect in the 1930s. Would this latter point in time be eligible?
I’m very interesting in this program, particularly because of its emphasis on the materiality of Indian Ocean ports. I have been working a ‘port’ that contains important art historical material in south India. This question has to do with dates. Since landscapes are layered and we tend to look for origins in current research, would you be open to a project framing an early port through later sources?
In Terms of Topics, is there a possibility to work on art / material culture from 1500-1900 as it circulates in today's global art market? Would that be a Topic that's eligible?
I would like to ask about the Research Project question in the application: for those who are very close to finishing their Ph.D. should they write about their Ph.D. project or should they write about their next project, perhaps a proposed Postdoctorate, or a mixture of the two?
Thank you for the presentation. Could you talk more about Indian Ocean art history? How do you define it and its positionality vis-a-vis for example Indian art or Southeast Asian art?
Thanks a lot for the presentation. 2 questions: 1) Red Sea - or the point between the Red Sea and Indian Ocean - can be considered? 2) I’m based now in Venice (Italy) but I worked on Portuguese Maps of Indian Ocean of 15th century.
The references are solely due if we are being seriously considered. Is that right?
Thank you for a great presentation! Do the reference letters have to come from art historians and when do you expect to make a decision about those who are under serious consideration?
Apologies for the typo!
Thank you for the presentation. I had a question regarding the professional references that are required. I am a graduate student - expected to graduate in 2021. By professional, do you mean the people we have worked with as a student or as an employee or it can be anybody in a professional/academic setting who knows the applicant well?
Since the this program is in some sense an interdisciplinary programme could this incorporate histories of religious iconography which could date from the remote past ? Thank you.
Thank you madam , would you mind repeating the time period of this research program dealing with. Thank you.
Thank you that’s super exciting!
Can you say a little more about the appropriate scope for projects?
My question has been answered. Thank you Dr. Meier and Dr. Um. I am an artist and scholar and so looking forward to applying.
How far into the research projects does one need to be (early stage, completed)?
Thank you for introducing the ambitious and equitable vision of the Indian Ocean Exchanges! With the collaborative and horizontal aims you have in mind, apart from developing a bibliography together, does this program envision training/ encouraging participants to create public-facing scholarship/ resources--blogpost, podcasts, etc.
Regarding my previous question concerning the Mascarene islands, would you consider relations between hinterland and coastline architecture? Or must the focus be only on the history of coastline architecture? And does one need to already be engaged in art history project to qualify?
thank you ma'am , my question has been answered.
Thank you so much, that's so helpful. Thank you for the congratulations as well - I'm very excited to finish but also very excited to continue working on the topic at the next level. This is such an amazing opportunity, thank you to you both for putting the work in to get this project together!
Could I also ask when you envisage the project will officially start?
This is a wonderful initiative to facilitate regional cooperation and enquiry skills and knowledge sharing. Knowledge flow across the IOW has a Long History. Great beginning. Thank you both .
Thank you for this clear presentation and compelling work! We owe you all a great debt for this scholarly framing of the ocean we all care about, and especially for underscoring generosity as a scholarly value. Given the wide interest in this approach (the many attendees at this meeting!) will you and the selected cohort continue to hold public talks and events that enable this community to continue? Thank you!
Thank you Dr. Um! Such a good presentation.
*not a question - Thank you for this session. I too am blown away by the profiles and interests of those on this call. This is so exciting. Regardless, hope to bump into some of you one day - art, pluralism and public spaces - contemporary and historic - are a life obsession!
This program is so forward-thinking. We will all be looking forward to the bibliography that you put together, even if we are not selected to participate. Thank you for making this idea real!
Thank you for answering my question in such a substantive manner, indicating that the selected group together will develop the direction you take. I echo many of the comments applauding this project and the principles guiding it’s parameters. An amazing model to learn from…
Thank you for this presentation and putting together this project! I look forward to the project and the associated aspects of the project. Thank for starting a constructive dialogue on IOW :)
thank you very much for this wonderful introduction session, amazing project!
