Looking for Muslim Beta Readers for my historical fantasy set in the 9th century

Hello everyone,

I am in the final editing stages of a novel adapting the legends of Charlemagne into novels for modern day audiences and am looking for feedback before publication. In other words, this isn't a rough draft and you won't be asked to read multiple versions - just this one.

My story is set in the beginning of the ninth century and takes place in both the Frankish Empire and in the Maghreb. Some of the historical figures  I am adding into the legend cycle includes Caliph Harun al-Rashid and his faithful companions.

Re: Rohingya

Hello Dhruba,

Both Chicago, Illinois and Milwaukee, Wisconsin have seen an influx of Rohingya. If you haven't yet contacted the Rohingya American Society (located in Milwaukee) or the Zakat Foundation (which is assisting with resettlement in Chicago) both organizations may be able to assist your research.

Best of luck!

Re: Looking for a 2014 article

Dear Matt and colleagues:

Thanks for your inquiry. I just communicated with Prof. Wang Yangzong 王扬宗 of the University of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and author of the paper in question, and he has kindly given me permission to share his article with colleagues on this list. You can download a PDF version of the article, with some corrections of typos, at my Dropbox by October 15, 2018: https://www.dropbox.com/s/o7yinp6uv17k46j/%E4%B8%AD%E7%A7%91%E9%99%A2%E7....

Re: Interesting article about art podcasts & podcast formats

I agree with you that the podcast can be seen as an expression of scholarly engagement. I'm thinking of this expressly through the lens of public scholarship expressed by Imagining America http://imaginingamerica.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/ScholarshipinPubl...). Working on my podcasts with colleague and students to explore community, if framed by a broader scholarly question should be seen as part of a bigger, knowledge creation framework.


Hi there,

I am looking for oral history archives (other than Shoah) that have contents related to Rohingya. 

Do you all know any NGO that is working towards the integration of refugees, especially Rohingya?

QUERY> Looking for William Brown

[Posted on behalf of Ken Tanaka]

Dear Colleagues

We are looking to make contact with a Dr. William Brown (Brooklyn, New York), who formerly worked at Brooklyn College. He had been involved in the translation of one of our texts, Daijo-genron 大乗玄論 (Taisho 1853). He was connected to Mr. C.T. Shen of Port Lee, New Jersey. 

We would very much appreciate it if you could inform me should you have any leads toward us locating Dr. William Brown. 

Sincerely yours,

Kenneth K. Tanaka (kktanaka@gamma.ocn.ne.jp)
