The present volume curates papers presented at an international conference organized at OUCIP to engage with the oceanic turn in different fields of knowledge embracing Social Sciences, Humanities and, Physical Sciences to project the Indian Ocean as the new frontier of research across various disciplines. That this event coincided with a series of programmes launched in different Indian cities under the aegis of Project Mausam of Government of India was indeed fortuitous. The papers are divided into four sections: The Oceanic Reach has papers reflecting on the received knowledge regarding the historical role and reach of the Indian Ocean and providing new insights in the evolving dynamics of the region. The section Literature and Culture has essays reflecting the different trajectories within Humanities and Cultural Studies through which Indian Ocean has stimulated the imagination of scholars, intellectuals, diasporic writers, and culture historians. The section on Roots and Routes includes accounts of the historical, cultural, religious, trade and diasporic linkages across oceanic com-munities inhabiting the vast expanse of the Indian Ocean. The final section The Power Games includes papers that deal with the increasing interests of various international powers in the Indian Ocean region particularly in the context of the shift from the Asian land mass to the enormous presence of the Indian Ocean, and the economic, political and strategic significance that it has for the entire region. Taken together these contributions offer both an opportunity and a challenge for interested scholars to engage with Indian Ocean as a new frontier of knowledge with enormous potential for research and exploration. Kousar J. Azam, Professor Emeritus, and former Head Department of Political Science at Osmania University, Hyderabad, has held many academic and administrative positions including the Chairmanship of the Southern Regional Centre of the ICSSR. She has authored/edited nine books and has been the Advisor, Programmes and Development at Osmania University Centre for International Programmes (OUCIP) until recently.
