Testimonials from 2015


‘It was a pleasure to meet Dr Muhammad Isa Waley. His commentary on the British Library collection and his selection of Ottoman manuscripts provided me with many insights on the complex nature of the field and the variety of available materials.’ – Dr S. Naguib

 ‘It was beneficial in terms of gaining familiarity with the sources and libraries/research centres relevant to my field in England. I also gained useful advice for research methodology, especially given the fact that I am a first year PhD candidate.’ – Anonymous

‘…it gave an idea for researchers about the libraries to explore and also, helped how to find the sources easily.’ – Anonymous

‘The expertise and the quality of the instructors were amazing: to be honest, I wasn’t expecting it to be at this level.’ – Dr S. Alsan

‘[The Programme] was highly stimulating. I managed to locate what seems to be a useful manuscript through Al-Furqan catalogue. In addition, I have a better grasp of how to research the historical contexts of these manuscripts through archival collections which I would not have normally considered as possible sources for my work on intellectual history.’– Dr S. Naguib
