Svoboda Diary Home

About this Project

This project is supporting Nowf Allawi, an Iraqi researcher living in Baghdad, in her creation of a text and translation of a late nineteenth century travel diary written in Arabic by a native English speaker living in Baghdad. Because of the present conditions in Iraq, the team will help Ms. Allawi with the creation of a tagged digital Arabic script transcription of the diary, a translation edited and formatted for print publication, and research on the the notes and glossary.

PIs: Nowf Allawi, Walter G. Andrews, Stacy Waters
