Professor Ahmad Mahdavi Damghani Collection on Islamic Studies

The George Washington University - Thu, 05/14/2015 - 13:39
May 14, 2015The George Washington University Libraries are pleased to introduce the Professor Ahmad Mahdavi Damghani Collection on Islamic Studies to the Global Resources Center as part of the Middle East and North Africa Research Center (MENA).
 
The Professor Ahmad Mahdavi Damghani Collection on Islamic Studies is one of the largest Arabic/Persian collections of Shi‘I and Sunni foundational sources on Islamic law, jurisprudence, theology and exegesis in the United States. This is the first step in collection building for the newly established Master’s degree program in Islamic Studies at the Religion department.
 
Faculty advocated strongly for the addition due to the University's growing focus on the Islamic world and the role religion and culture play in shaping long-term dynamics in the region. The collection will directly support the new MA program in Islamic Studies, as well as related interdisciplinary research rooted in the study of policy, culture, and society. All 4000 books are on our shelves, though they are not currently available to check out.
