IASA Lecture by Dr. Janet M. Purdy 'Carved Doors as Historical Documents in Zanzibar, Oman, and Beyond.'
14/06/2021 5:30pm
This talk focuses on the ways carved doors function as primary historical documents. Insights drawn from extensive comparative visual analysis that situates Zanzibar doors within a broader range of examples from Oman, the Swahili coast, Gujarat, and more, reveal regional affinities and multi-vocal expressions as reflections of individual histories and cultural exchange.
