Abstract (provided by author): ‘Indian Ocean Ontology: Nyerere, Memory, Place’ is a self reflexive essay grafting Kerala with Tanzania. It explores the gaps between the lived, the historic, and the everyday that shapes modern migrancy, and the challenges of citizenship that informed Tanzanian Asians of the 1960s and 1970s. How does one write through the process of dislocation, revolution, diaspora? This essay takes a stab at some methodological and writerly directions.
