I’ve been away for a while, but I’ve been working this entire time.
- Traveling to India and Sri Lanka;
- Participating in a Panel Discussion at AAR;
- Presenting a paper at SBL;
- Giving an invited lecture at the Institute for Advanced Study.
I’ve since returned to my research, but what occasioned this blog post today was the announcement of a new digital research resource on the Hugoye list, namely Iraqi Academic Scientific Journals. This is an online repository for (currently) 51,892 articles from 206 academic peer-reviewed journals produced by 35 institutions in Iraq. Among these 51,892 articles was one on the Mandaeans, entitled “الزي الديني لطائفة الصابئة المندائيين في البصرة” (“The religious garb of Sabian-Mandaeans in Basra”), written by Abd al-Latif Hashem of the Basra Studies Center.
