The development of the historical profession in the Arab World since 1945 has received scant attention from Western scholars of the region. This is particularly the case regarding modern Arabic studies on Antiquity and the Middle Ages. Even in the field of medieval Islamic history, there is generally little awareness on the part of scholars based in the West, about the research and publications of their colleagues in the Arabic-speaking countries. As a consequence, Arabic secondary sources are rarely utilized and reviewed by Western historians of the medieval Islamic period.

This is a renewed call for essays in medieval Jewish angelology for an edited collection
A edited volume on comparative medieval angelology has been approved by a university press but because of withdrawn submissions, the volume is still in need of essays in medieval Jewish (which may extend to the 17th century) angelology. as well as additional essays in 'medieval' Islamic angelology. Approaches from all disciplines and methodologies will be considered and newly-minted PhDs are encouraged to submit abstracts.
As medievalists, we access our period through the written records, sites, and items that survive in order to form a deeper understanding of the period, one that goes beyond the page or the ruinous buildings that remain today.
