SQCC Travels to New Orleans for Middle East Studies Association Conference

Friday, November 15, 2019
From 15-17 November, SQCC exhibited at the Book Bazaar of the Middle Eastern Studies Association (MESA) Annual Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana. The MESA annual meeting is the largest gathering of academics and researchers focused on the Middle East in the U.S. At MESA, SQCC promoted its new primary source database, An Ocean of Paper, which seeks to stimulate new research in the social history of the Sultanate by collecting, cataloging, and publishing the thousands of deeds (called waraqas) produced by Omanis in South Arabia and East Africa during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Staffers also spoke to conference attendees about the cultural and educational programs that SQCC offers, including SALAM, Sabla, Evening Arabic Classes for Professionals, the Research Fellowship and the SQCC library.
