GSU, Asian Studies Center: "The ​First ​World ​Commodity: Indian Textiles and their Global Success, 1300-1800"

In the late middle ages and the early modern period, cotton textiles produced in the Indian subcontinent were traded across and beyond the Indian Ocean. Archaeological findings show their presence in Egypt and Southeast Asia already in the fourteenth century. With the arrival of the European East India Companies after 1500, this trade expanded to include Europe, the Atlantic and Colonial America.
Dr. Riello, Professor of History, University of Warwick, UK, discusses why Indian cottons were such a popular commodity first in India and later across most parts of the world. This event is free and open to public.

Date: Thursday, April 7, 2016
Time: 3:30pm
NEW Venue: GSU, History Department Room 2150 (25 Park Place, 21st floor), Atlanta, GA, 30030
