This virtual open house features a selection of prominent Arabic writings from the classical and post-classical periods among the holdings of the Islamic Manuscripts Collection preserved in the University Library. Carefully transcribed copies of classic literary works by al-Mutanabbī (d.965), Abū al-ʻAlāʼ al-Maʻarrī (d.1057), and al-Ḥarīrī (d.1122) will appear along with influential grammatical, scientific, and mystical writings — and even a text on musical theory and performance.
Register above, and we'll send you a Zoom link via email approximately 24 hours before the event.
Special Collections After Hours is a monthly open house where we share highlights from the unique historical collections held by the Special Collections Research Center.
Library events are free and open to the public, and we are committed to making them accessible to attendees. If you anticipate needing accommodations to participate, please notify the listed contact with as much notice as possible.
