THIS PROJECT IS RUN BY HISTORIANS OF NON-WESTERN CULTURES. ITS AIMS ARE TO OFFER  OUR RESEARCH TO A BROAD PUBLIC AND TO CREATE A PLATFORM OF DEBATE AND DIALOGUE. OUR MOTI-VATION IS THE EVER GROWING AMOUNT OF FALSE INFORMATION AND EVALUA-TION OF ALL FIELDS OF INTELLECTUAL ACTIVITIES IN ASIAN AND AFRICAN SO-CIETIES. 

 

GLORIFICATION, EXAGGERATION AND MISREPRESENTATION OF PHILOSOPHY,  THE SCIENCES, AND RELIGION AS WELL AS SIMPLE FACTUAL ERRORS DOMINATE MOST OF THE WEBSITES AND POPULAR BOOKS AND EXHIBITIONS.

CSAI is a computer-based archive of the University of Pisa comprised of over 6,000 Ancient South Arabian inscriptions.
 
 
OCIANA project of the University of Oxford presents all known Ancient North Arabian inscriptions in a single online corpus.
 
The corpus will be soon open in DASI thanks to the agreement with the CNRS UMR 8167 for the digitization of the Nabataean inscriptions.

THE INSTITUTE FOR ADVANCED STUDY is an independent private institution founded in 1930 to create a community of scholars focused on intellectual inquiry, free from teaching and other university obligations. Each year scholars from around the world apply to come to the Institute to pursue their own research. Those who are chosen are offered a membership for a set period. Members receive access to the extensive resources of the Institute, including offices, access to libraries, subsidized restaurant and housing facilities, and some secretarial services.

THE SCHOOL OF HISTORICAL STUDIES supports scholarship in all fields of historical research, but is concerned principally with the history of western, near eastern and Asian civilizations, with particular emphasis upon Greek and Roman civilization, the history of Europe (medievel, early modern, and modern), the Islamic world, East Asian studies, art history, the history of science and philosophy and modern international relations. The School also offers the Edward T. Cone Membership in Music Studies. Each year the School welcomes approximately forty Members. Most are working on topics in the above mentioned fields, but each year the School also selects some scholars working in other areas of historical research. Members in the School are appointed for either one term (first term Sept. 25 to Dec. 22, second term Jan. 15 to April 13) or for two terms, amounting to a full academic year.

FUNDING FOR MEMBERS comes from a variety of sources. The Center for Spain in America supports one John Elliott Member pursuing research in the history and culture of Early Modern Spain. The Patricia Crone membership will be offered for the first time for the 2017-18 academic year to support one scholar working in the field of Near Eastern Studies. The Edward T. Cone membership annually supports one scholar in Music Studies. A Gerda Henkel membership will be offered to one scholar from the European Union, and there are other named memberships that are not tied to any specific field or nationality. Some Members will also be supported by the Institute's own endowment or through foundation grants. The School also welcomes scholars sponsored by the ACLS through the Frederick Burkhardt Fellowships for recently tenured professors. (To apply see: www.acls.org/programs/burkhardt/.) Specific sources of funding will be determined after scholars have been selected.

Further information and membership application materials may be found on the School’s web site, www.hs.ias.edu. Inquiries may be sent by email to the Administrative Officer at mzelazny@ias.edu or by post to: School of Historical Studies, Institute for Advanced Study, 1 Einstein Drive, Princeton, New Jersey 08540. Completed membership applications must be submitted by November 1, 2016.
