Abstract:The Indian Ocean has been called the 'coming strategic arena of the twenty-first century'. This special issue provides an overview of emerging trends in the field of Indian Ocean Studies and draws out their implications for scholars of Africa. The focus is on the role of print and visual culture in constituting public spheres in and between the societies around the Ocean.

Brennan); Indian Ocean world cinema: viewing the history of race, diaspora and nationalism in urban Tanzania (Ned Bertz); Authority and piety, writing and print: a preliminary study of the circulation of Islamic texts in late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Zanzibar (Anne K.
