CFP: 2nd. International Symposium Yemen under the Ottoman Rule (1833-1924)

Dear All, 

This is the first circular call for papers 2nd. International Symposium Yemen under the Ottoman Rule (1833-1924).

The 2nd. International Symposium Yemen under the Ottoman Rule (1833-1924) will be held at İstanbul University on the 16-17 of November 2017. The symposium will focus only on the Ottoman second administration era in the Yemen (1833-1924). 

Proceeding abstract submission and other information about symposium will be on the symposium website (yemensempozyumu.istanbul.edu.tr) which will be active soon. 

Ambassador Frederic L. Chapin

Hello everyone,

Does anyone know if Frederic Chapin donated his papers to a university library and, if so, which institution? Chapin's ambassadorship to Guatemala coincided with a pivotal moment in Guatemalan history, and would be an ideal source for those of us interested in U.S.-Guatemalan relations.

 

Thanks,

Michael Cangemi
