Cultural Workshop: "Fashion and Identity in Zanzibar, the Paris of the Swahili Coast." Beginning with the late 19th century end of slavery in Zanzibar, liberated women and men reinvented themselves, while the local patricians followed their own fashion reinventing the Sultanate aristocracy. Zanzibar fashion will be compared with that in later 20th century Lamu and Mombasa, the other two cosmopolitan Swahili towns on the East African coast of the Indian Ocean. Speaker: Sidney Kasfir, Professor Emerita. Art History Department Emory University
