SQCC Hosts Public Lecture by Dr. Eric Tagliacozzo

Friday, September 15, 2017

On Friday 15 September,  the Sultan Qaboos Cultural Center welcomed Dr. Eric Tagliacozzo, who delivered a presentation and lecture titled “The Indian Ocean Spice Trade and Global Histories of Connection.”

Dr. Eric Tagliacozzo, Professor of History at Cornell University, discussed how the importance placed upon spices manifested itself in international partnerships. Oman was a central participant in such activity in part due to its location along the Indian Ocean, from where it was connected with Africa, Asia, and the Spice Islands as well as Europe. His recent publications have focused on subjects from Muslim pilgrimage to topics in Southeast Asian studies. Following his presentation, Dr. Tagliacozzo answered questions from a number of guests attending the event.
