Event date: 2 May 2015, 9am–5pm

This one-day international workshop on global indigo (1500–1900) will be held at the London School of Economics and Political Science. It brings together a group of scholars working on various historical aspects of indigo production and trade. The five presenters will discuss their major research on the historical, political-economic and technological dimensions of indigo in Spanish Central America (17th century), French St Domingue (18th century) and Mughal and British colonial India (17th–19th centuries). The workshop is aimed at initiating a dialogue between scholars specializing in the history of indigo in their respective regions as well as between them and other social and economic historians, and at developing a global historical framework to study the commodity.
