Could you help me?

I got the following from a friend; since he is not on the list, please
respond directly to him. Thanks, Rachel

**************************************************************
I would be grateful for any biographical information about the Egyptian
scholar, Abd al-Rahman Badawi. I know he is Egyptian and was born in the
first third of this century. He was a student of Louis Massignon. He wrote
copiously on classical Greek philosophy, medieval Arabic philosophy,
Islamic sectarianism, orientalists, etc., etc.

But when exactly was he born? Is he still alive, and if not, when did he
die? What academic posts did he hold?

I have checked the "normal" sources available to me and come up empty
handed. I am hoping there are sources available to members of MELA that I
do not know about.

Please respond to me privately:  pmiller@...

Many thanks.

Julia Tu'mah Dimashqiyah

I am trying to locate information on Julia Tu'mah Dimashqiyah for a Ph.D.
student here at Ohio State.  Daghir's Masadir al-dirasah al-adabiyah lists
what I assume to be obituaries which we would like to get copies of.

al-Hayah (newspaper from Beirut), 15 August 1954, p. 5
Majallat al-Wurud, vol. 8 no. 4 (Kanun al-Awwal 1954), p. 15

In addition, Daghir mentions that some kind of "notebooks" of hers were
published in a journal called Sawt al-mar'ah, without giving any dates or
volumes.

As usual, I greatly appreciate any information anyone has.

Dona

Does anyone out there receive Kull al-Arab (Nazareth)?  And if so, do you
film it?
Thanks.

New Journal: MIT Electronic Journal of Middle East Studies

Date: Thu, 20 May 1999 19:45:14 -0400 (EDT)                                     
From: Maha Yahya <my7@...>     

The MIT Electronic Journal for Middle East Studies

The MIT Electronic Journal of Middle East Studies (MIT EJMES), a  
new, multi-disciplinary  academic journal focusing on the modern
Middle East and North Africa, is currently soliciting submissions 
for its first issue, to be published Fall 1999.  Submissions may be 
in the form of interdisciplinary work or work within the traditional
boundaries of the social sciences and humanities.  Examples include
papers based on original research, papers applying theory to a
pressing problem in the modern Middle East, as well as reviews of 
books and cultural events.

MIT EJMES, founded and run primarily by graduate students and young
scholars, is committed to publishing the highest quality scholarly writing
on the modern Middle East.  Although MIT EJMES especially encourages
submissions from young scholars, all authors may submit articles for
consideration.

MIT EJMES is published on the internet, at http://cis-server.mit.edu/mideast/

As an internet journal, we believe MIT EJMES will be able to take
advantage of the benefits of computer communication to reach a wide 
and diverse audience of Middle East observers, scholars and researchers.
MIT EJMES is intended to facilitate scholarly communication among
colleagues and across borders.

Submissions should generally be from 1000 to 6000 words in length, and

Dear Chalermsee, Alan, Sarah, Sushila, and David:

I'm sure you will recall that we all agreed at the Midwinter CC:AAM meeting
to serve on a subcommittee  which was formed to investigate the issues
surrounding rules for headings in non-roman scripts in AACR2. James
Agenbroad and Joan Aliprand, who represent two different viewpoints, will
serve as consultants to our subcommittee. It was also decided that we would
invite a representative from the PCC group on non-roman headings to be an
observer/consultant of the subcommittee. You will also recall that Mr.

free to let me know if you have different ideas.

Thanks,
