Appraising Risk Summer School Workshop

24 May 2022

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 standardize
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.
