Christopher Conte (Utah State University) will present on "Spices, Slaves and Landscape History on an Indian Ocean Island."

This talk will sketch an environmental history of Pemba Island, which is part of Zanzibar, Tanzania. Its aim is to integrate two concepts, cosmopolitanism and landscape, in a historical reading of the island's changing landscapes. It is also a story of a personal journey to find the signs of the past living in the present.

The Lunchtime Colloquium is free and open to the public.

Snacks are served at 12:00; the lecture starts at 12:30.
