Arabic Script in Africa: Website Announcement

Dear Colleagues,

We have set up a Tumblr-based website at dedicated to the
studies of African languages written in Arabic script (Ajami) and related
disciplines. We hope that the website will develop into a networking and
informational hub building on earlier and current research. As a first step,
we would like to invite you to send us news and information regarding:
– events (conferences, workshops, presentations and calls for papers);
– research projects;
– recent publications (papers, books, dissertations and theses);
– other relevant material (e.g. work outside academia, technical changes
affecting our research, etc.).

With potential growth of information, the website might need more editorial
support and we will be grateful to early volunteers even at this initial

Please send us your ideas and any suggestions to

With our best wishes,
Meikal Mumin and Dmitry Bondarev
