  • Children on Board: Child labor on ships in the Indian Ocean, c. 18th
           – 19th Centuries

    • Authors: Sundara Vadlamudi
      Pages: 129 - 153
      Abstract: A growing body of research has focused on adult Asian sailors’ employment on European ships in the Indian and Atlantic Oceans. However, the experiences of children who worked on ships in the Indian Ocean World have received comparatively little attention. The scholarly lacuna is striking considering the tremendous increase in the scope and sophistication in the discussions on child slavery and abolition. This article examines the use of children as maritime laborers in the Indian Ocean World between the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. In doing so, it examines the multiple pathways through which children were brought for work on ships and studies the recruitment patterns of adult and child sailors. It focuses on the various types of labor performed by children on ships and discusses how conditions of servitude on land were transferred to a ship when children accompanied their masters. It then also discusses how prevailing understandings of childhood, domestic service, and child labor shaped the actions of English East India Company officials towards child sailors while undertaking anti-slavery measures during the nineteenth century.

  • Embodiment and Memories: Literary Articulations of Coastal Women and
           Manifestations Of Indian Ocean Cultures

    • Authors: Ayan Salaad
      Pages: 154 - 178
      Abstract: This article brings into conversation two pieces of Indian Ocean fiction about women, a Banaadiri wedding song, called ‘Waa Guuriheeynnaa,’ and Cristina Ali Farah’s published work A Dhow is Crossing the Sea. I interrogate what constitutes female kinship, coastal identity, cultural heritage, and the ties between these phenomena through a comparative analysis of the two texts. I assess how both works express kinship between coastal women and the ways in which their Indian Ocean and local cultural identities become embodied forms of knowledge. I then explore the differing ways that women in ‘Waa Guuriheeynnaa’ and A Dhow is Crossing the Sea use material culture as an act of female community making. I argue that in both literary works, women’s bodies carry cultural meaning. However, while in ‘Waa Guuriheeynnaa,’ it is through women’s bodies that Banaadiri Indian Ocean culture is expressed, affirmed, and continued, in A Dhow is Crossing the Sea, coastal women’s bodies attest to a more uneven and contested Indian Ocean and diasporic heritage that registers historical losses as well as their everyday lived realities.

  • Dock Labour and a Connected History of Workers in Early Twentieth Century

    • Authors: Prerna Agarwal
      Pages: 179 - 207
      Abstract: This article argues that class formation and labour radicalism in the industrial cities of colonial India need to be located in connected histories of workers, which go beyond analysis of single industries. It shows that the horizontal mobility of workers in early twentieth-century Calcutta was a result of a pervasiveness of casual work, both among the ‘unskilled’ and the skilled. Skill levels and occupations were crucial in defining the boundaries of not one, as is frequently posited, but several labour pools. It was in this form that the reserve army of labour was ever-present in the city, which gave workers networks beyond one workplace, one neighborhood and frequently, even one industry. The special role of segments of skilled workers has rarely been studied in relation to labour militancy and politics. The article sustains an emphasis on the role of industrial centres, such as the docklands, through which a high degree of interconnectedness across industrial processes in terms of shared occupations and skills across several industries and neighborhoods, can be excavated and mapped onto episodes of labour militancy. The neighbourhood, the trade unions, and nationalist events have all hitherto been studied to understand the shaping of workers’ protest. This article, by contrast, focuses on other crucial elements: the workplace and the industrial processes, which tied workers together in concrete, everyday, and proximate relationships.

  • Ocean and Human Health in the Blue Era, Indian Ocean and African

    • Authors: Rosabelle Boswell
      Pages: 208 - 226
      Abstract: In this article, I discuss the fact that human-ocean relations are increasingly being scrutinized, as scholars seek to frame, understand and mitigate the impacts of climate change on Earth. I propose that for the southwest Indian Ocean that scholars follow Chimamanda Adichie’s directive to critique ‘single stories’ by considering locally produced, embodied, sensorial relations of indigenous peoples and local communities (IPLCs) to the sea and coasts, as well as the role that such relations might play in shaping health. I add that such relations cultivate a ‘blue’ consciousness and a nascent ‘blue’ rights – borne of symbioses between humans and ocean. I add that these advance a holistic and integrated human and ocean health. The discussion makes the case for the re-placement of globalized paradigms of climate change and for the inclusion of locally generated narratives of human relations with the sea. I posit that a more careful analysis of coastal and oceanic (intangible cultural) heritages can reveal transmaterial, interspecies relations with the sea. Drawing on anthropological research in the Southwest Indian Ocean World (SWIOW) and then in coastal South Africa, I argue that such narratives can herald not only a notion of global blue rights, they can also herald, from the ‘periphery’, a blue era where there is deeper consideration of sustainable human relations with the sea.
