Traces of the Hand from Africa to Asia: A Symposium on the Palaeography of Arabic-Script Languages

24 August 2015, King's College London, Strand Campus, London, UK

 

Dear Colleagues,

 

The Islamic Manuscript Association, in collaboration with the Department of Classics at King’s College London and the Thesaurus Islamicus Foundation, is pleased to announce a symposium on the palaeography of Arabic-script languages at King’s College London’s Great Hall on the Strand, London, on Monday, 24 August.

 

Compared with the well-established Greek, Latin, Hebrew, and Coptic palaeographic traditions, the study of Arabic scripts is still in its infancy. However, as the increasing number of studies published by scholars such as François Déroche, Adam Gacek, and Yusuf Raghib shows, interest in the field is growing.

 

In this symposium, five distinguished speakers will critically appraise the state of the field and explore new directions for study. The keynote address by Adam Gacek, author of multiple books and articles on the codicology and palaeography of Arabic manuscripts, including Arabic Manuscripts: A Vademecum for Readers (Brill 2011), and retired faculty lecturer and research associate at the Institute of Islamic Studies, McGill University, will assess the last quarter-century of palaeographic scholarship and suggest areas of future research. Additional presentations will explore current research and lacunae in scholarship on Arabic, Persian, Ottoman, and Jawi palaeography in more detail.

 

Admission is free of charge, but registration is essential. Presentations will be in English, and simultaneous Arabic interpretation will be available. 

 

For further information and to register, see our website.

 

Best wishes,

 

Armin

WISE Guidelines

What is WISE?

"Web-based Information Science Education (WISE) is a unique and groundbreaking opportunity in online education. Leading library and information science schools have extended their reach on a global basis to broaden the educational opportunities available to students. WISE uses advanced online technology to enrich education and foster relationships among students, faculty, and universities. The vision of this initiative is to provide a collaborative distance education model that will increase the quality, access, and diversity of online education opportunities in library and information science." -- from the WISE website. See www.wiseeducation.org for more information.

Participating Institutions in WISE:

Indiana University-Indianapolis
Rutgers University
Simmons College
Syracuse University
University of British Columbia
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
University of Maryland
University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill
University of Pittsburgh
University of Texas at Austin
University of Western Ontario
University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
Victoria University of Wellington

Why be a WISE student?

WISE students have the opportunity to access distance education courses through WISE member schools that are distinguished in quality and leadership in online education. WISE member schools offer a wide array of special topics courses, providing students with the ability to broaden their educational experience.

For example, a student interested in a particular topic may access expertise from a wider base of faculty and research than may be normally available within their home school. A professional who is working on the LIS degree will have greater flexibility in scheduling and have a multitude of options when considering specialized topics.

The WISE student will have the ability to select from a list of online courses, regardless of their location, and take courses with faculty who are highly regarded in their area of expertise.

How does WISE work at Simmons?

As a student at a WISE consortium school, you will have access to courses offered by participating institutions. These online courses are taught by faculty from WISE host schools using course management systems specific to their environment and academic calendar. You will have the opportunity to take electives of interest at other WISE schools, without having to transfer credits. You must respect and follow the varying delivery methods, academic calendars, and residency requirements among WISE schools.

Guidelines for Simmons Students:

General Guidelines

SLIS students who have completed twelve semester hours will have the opportunity to select from a variety of online courses, regardless of their location. As with any other course, you will register through AARC using LIS course numbers. We will then notify WISE and the host institution. Descriptions of WISE courses currently being offered at Simmons are on the WISE Courses page.

Please note: in order to take a WISE course, you must have approval from one of the SLIS WISE coordinators. Please email gsliswise-Z4c9/L5oVSSVc3sceRu5cw@public.gmane.org for more information.

Any Simmons SLIS student taking a WISE course should follow these guidelines:

·        You agree to the course parameters of the host institution including course management tools, grading, dates of term and any required residencies

·        You choose a course that is appropriate to your plan of study

·        You have a home computer or access to the technology necessary for completion of course

·        You have the technical knowledge to complete an online course successfully

·        You are fluent in English

·        You may take up to six (6) elective credits through the WISE Consortium

·        You may not substitute any WISE course for a core requirement

·        You will be accepted by WISE on a space-available basis, determined by the host institution

Schedules

WISE courses at other schools often do not match the SLIS course schedule. You must follow the start date, end date, and any other deadline of the WISE course at the host institution.

For the purposes of the registrar and financial aid, the SLIS version of the WISE course will begin at the start of the SLIS semester, regardless of the actual start date of the WISE course at the host institution.

If the end date of the WISE course at the host institution is after the end date of SLIS classes, a grade of incomplete will be given to you as a placeholder when SLIS grades are due. When the actual grade is awarded by the host institution, the incomplete will be replaced by the actual grade, without penalty to you.

Tuition refunds

Other than the exceptions specified here, the Simmons policies for tuition refunds and the SLIS policies for refunds (see above: Tuition Refund Policy) apply.


WISE exceptions to Simmons tuition refund policies:

The deadlines and policies for course withdrawal or dropping vary widely across WISE host institutions. You must respect the drop or withdrawal deadline of the host institution. However, because you are also enrolled in a Simmons SLIS course, the following Simmons policies on tuition refunds for dropping or withdrawal from a WISE course also apply, regardless of the policies of the WISE host institution.

Percentage of course schedule (start and end date for the WISE course) completed when dropping or withdrawing from a WISE course:

·        Up to 10% — Full tuition refunded

·        11 - 20% — 80% tuition refunded

·        21 - 30% — 60% tuition refunded

·        31 - 40% — 40% tuition refunded

·        41 - 50% — 20% tuition refunded

·        51% or more — No refund

book reproducing Qajar manuscript of 1001 Nights

Dear colleagues,
One of our patrons is researching Qajar-era book illustration. She has been told, by a senior scholar, that in recent years a book was published in Iran that completely reproduces the lavishly illustrated Qajar manuscript of the 1001 Nights held by the Gulistan Palace Library.

Unfortunately, the patron does not have a citation, just a description of the book (the senior scholar could not recall the exact title or the editor). A search of Worldcat for "Hazar va yak shab" did not produce any conclusive results.

Has anyone come across such a book, or a reference to it?  Any leads or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,

András Riedlmayer

interview space in greater DC area

Hi all,

 

Sorry for the interruption on your Friday afternoon, but I need some advice/suggestions.

 

We (AKDC) are doing an oral history with a prominent Iraqi architect and need a small, private (i.e., with a door), stately (with books would be nice) space to hold the interviews on 19, 20, and 21 August.  There will be 4-5 people at the interviews at any given time; someone will be filming.

 

If you have any ideas or, perhaps, a spare room at your institution (VA/DC peeps), please let me know.  You can do so off-list at scsmith-3s7WtUTddSA@public.gmane.org

 

Thank you.

 

Best,

Sharon

Call for volunteer

MELA members,

As you may know, we have an annual award, called the David H. Partington 
Award, that is given to a MELA member who has shown extraordinary 
service to Middle East librarianship and the field of librarianship in 
general.  The committee consists of three members, myself as the one 
continuing member, another MELA member, and a MESA representative.  Our 
previous call for volunteers went unanswered, so the call is out again.  
The timeline at this point is rather short as we will need to gather 
potential members, compile information about their accomplishments, and 
request supporting statements from their library administrators.  From 
this information the group of three will decide on one candidate and 
forward the recommendation on to the MELA executive for approval.  
If/when approved the chosen one will be contacted to determine if they 
will be able to attend the annual meeting to accept the award.  The name 
of the person chosen will not be made public until the November meeting.

If you would like to volunteer, please contact me soonest.  You would 
have an obligation to serve for two years, and would defacto become the 
chair of the committee next year.

John

MELA Bylaws revision paragraph J section 8

Dear MELA members,


The Committee on Bylaws has completed the revision of paragraph J section 8 (ARTICLE IV). The purpose was to better define the term of services for committee members and chairpersons, and to allow some flexibility in membership. 


The full text of the revisions are online at: http://mela.us/MELA%20BYLAWS%202015%20proposed%20revisions.pdf

 

The voting will be done electronically, and further information will be sent out.

 

 Committee terms of service [revised July 2015]


1. The chairs of all committees, both standing and those convened by the Executive Board, may serve for a maximum of three consecutive years, unless invited to extend service by the Executive Board.

2. Committee chairs may chair only one committee at a time.

3. Members may serve on no more than two committees simultaneously.

4. Members may serve on a committee for no longer than two consecutive terms, a maximum of six years, unless a different term is stipulated elsewhere in the bylaws.


Iman Dagher

On behalf of the Bylaws Committee

Dear all,

We’re pleased to announce that the holdings of the Royal Asiatic Society
http://www.royalasiaticsociety.org/?q=library have been added to Copac.


The collections of the Royal Asiatic Society have developed continually
since the founding of the Society in 1823, and today incorporate some
80,000 books and journals, thousands of manuscripts, paintings and
drawings, and maps, as well as extensive archive holdings.


The printed collections date back to the sixteenth century, and in subject
and language span the whole of Asia as well as adjacent regions, with
Indian and Persian cultures particularly well-represented. The core of the
printed collections is the nineteenth-century material, which is
representative of the development of Oriental studies during that period. A
vast range of subjects are covered, with the main strengths being in
languages, philology, art, history, literature, religion, and philosophy.


To browse, or limit your search to the Royal Asiatic Society, go to the
main tab on copac.jisc.ac.uk and choose ‘Royal Asiatic Society’ from the
list of libraries. Copac is a free service accessible at:
http://copac.jisc.ac.uk.
