2019 SQCC Research Fellowship Awarded

Wednesday, 12 December, 2018
SQCC is happy to announce the awarding of the 2019 SQCC Research Fellowship to Mrs. Linda Pappas Funsch. Mrs. Funsch, a Professor of Middle Eastern & Islamic Studies at Frederick Community College, will pursue a research project that will examine the evolution of women’s roles in the Sultanate of Oman, both historically and currently. The modern Omani Renaissance, initiated and guided by His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said since 1970, has transformed society at every level. Rapid social, political, and economic changes have had a profound effect on the lives of all citizens, including women. From the perspective of history and culture, Mrs. Funsch's project will focus on the journey of Omani women in national development in both the private and public spheres, examining their aspirations, accomplishments, and challenges in a culture committed to balancing traditional values with the opportunities of the 21st century.
