Fascinating event on South Asians of African descent

I find this a very fascinating and absorbing part of South Asian/African history. So it is wonderful to know that on the 18th October, the Institute of Commonwealth Studies presents an evening seminar titled African Diaspora in Asia: Cultural Survivals, Codes & Signifiers. This event explores a small part of the diaspora,  in order to understand the diversity of  South Asians of African descent.  The presentations on India and Sri Lanka are based on field work by scholars.  The  oral  histories  and contemporary status  of Afro-Asians is  articulated by those of African descent themselves known by various names in the region.   

Enterance to this event is free and is between 5:30-7:30pm. For a location map and further particulars please click here: http://commonwealth.sas.ac.uk/events/eventdetails0.html?id=12015
