Dr. Patricia M. Phillips-Batoma recently published a translated book titled "Arab Political Thought Past and Present" by Georges Corm. The book was published in January 2020 by C. Hurst (Publishers) Limited.
We are delighted to announce that the IPRH has recognized Dr. Ahyad’s expertise and the value of translation studies by awarding her a fellowship to conduct research during summer 2020. Dr. Ahyad’s project is to translate Manahil Sindi’s novel Nisf Estiwa (“Half-Cooked”) from Makkan to English.
The project has three parts: the translation of Manahil Sindi’s novel Nisf Estiwa (Half-Cooked), from Makkan Arabic into English, a research paper, and an interview with the Makkan novelist.
Only four projects were chosen for this distinction, among all the applications received across the campus. Heartiest congratulations to Dr. Ahyad!
