This workshop serves two core purposes. First, it is an update on some of the work being conducted as part of the SSHRC Partnership Project, ‘Appraising Risk, Past and Present: Interrogating Historical Data to Enhance Understanding of Environmental Crises in the Indian Ocean World.’ Workshop participants will learn how to standardise archival materials relating to rainfall in the Indian Ocean World, using late-nineteenth-century eastern Africa as a case study. Second, it is an introduction to some of the themes and methods to be explored in the IOWC online conference taking place on 25-27 May 2022,
entitled, ‘Adaptation and Resilience to Climatic and Environmental Changes in the Indian Ocean World, Past to Present.’ All workshop participants are invited and encouraged to attend the conference.
