The Bavarian Air Force World War I Aerial Photography of Palestine = Bayerisches Hauptstaatsarchiv: Bildsammlung Palästina

"The 2,872 photographs, comprising both aerial and ground photographs that are
now available on the website of the Central State Archive of the Bavarian State Office
for Surveying, constitute an important resource for the study of many aspects of the
landscape of Palestine and other territories at the end of Ottoman rule in the region.
These photographs offer an overview of the region’s topography as it was almost one
hundred years ago, and as such are of great significance to geographers, historians, and
researchers working on urban cultural history "

Open Access Repository of the Katedra Arabistyki i Islamistyki Uniwersytetu Warszawskiego

Open Access Repository of the Katedra Arabistyki i Islamistyki Uniwersytetu Warszawskiego
Katedra Arabistyki i Islamistyki Uniwersytetu Warszawskiego jest największym centrum badań w zakresie arabistyki i islamistyki w Polsce. Z początku arabistyka w Instytucie Orientalistycznym UW była połączona z pokrewnymi dziedzinami – turkologią i iranistyką. Dzięki staraniom J. Bielawskiego w 1964 roku została powołana Katedra Arabistyki, a co za tym idzie, arabistyka uzyskała samodzielny byt. Po licznych przekształceniach jednostka została ponownie przemianowana na Katedrę Arabistyki i Islamistyki w 2009 roku i obecnie jest jedną z trzech największych jednostek naukowych Wydziału Orientalistycznego UW.

Przy Katedrze działa największa biblioteka arabistyczno-islamoznawcza w Polsce, która gromadzi publikacje nie tylko z zakresu arabistyki i islamistyki, ale również pokrewnych specjalizacji orientalistycznych oraz nauk pomocniczych. Katedra prowadzi studia w zakresie arabistyki i islamistyki. Nabór odbywa się rokrocznie, a od roku 2007/2008 wprowadzony został podział na studia pierwszego i drugiego stopnia. W następnym roku rozpoczęto również nabór na studia niestacjonarne (wieczorowe) pierwszego stopnia. W Katedrze Arabistyki i Islamistyki studiują także doktoranci Wydziału Orientalistycznego UW, którzy prowadzą badania literaturoznawcze oraz językoznawcze z zakresu arabistyki i islamistyki.

Newly Open Access Journal: Anatoli: De l’Adriatique à la Caspienne. Territoires, Politique, Sociétés

Anatoli: De l’Adriatique à la Caspienne. Territoires, Politique, Sociétés
ISSN électronique 2498-0730
Couverture Anatoli N°6 - 2015
Anatoli est une publication annuelle consacrée à l’étude pluridisciplinaire de l’espace qui s’étend de l’Adriatique à la Caspienne. Elle s’intéresse aux cultures - grecque, latine, slave, turque, persane, géorgienne, arménienne, juive, etc. - qui l’ont habité et façonné. Les territoires de cet espace, aujourd’hui fragmenté, furent jadis unifiés, au moins partiellement, par les pouvoirs impériaux, dont le dernier fut l’empire ottoman. Ils en gardent bien des traits communs, souvent sous forme latente. L’importance de cet espace pour l’Union européenne est une évidence.
