Partner Projects

Links to related and cooperating projects and networks, ordered alphabetically.

  • Aquinas and 'the Arabs'
  • Since its founding The Aquinas and ‘the Arabs’ International Working Group’s members have initiated seminars, conferences and other events both on the Marquette campus and elsewhere. The Project annually sponsors four text seminars as well as other events at Marquette.

  • Arabic and Latin Glossary
  • Arabic and Middle Eastern Electronic Library (AMEEL)
  • Comparative Oriental Manuscript Studies (COMSt)
  • The program, scheduled by the Comparative Oriental Manuscript Studies Project for the years 2009-2014, aims at facilitating cross-cultural academic dialogue and active exchange in the field of Oriental manuscript studies with the focus on the Mediterranean and North African cultural areas.

  • Intellectual Encounters
  • Intellectual Encounters is a new virtual framework for studying the intellectual and multi-cultural legacy of the medieval Islamic world. Led by three renowned academics from Israel, Palestine, the U.S. and Germany, the project incorporates high-quality resources and the latest technology to foster interdisciplinary research and greater cross-cultural understanding. The project’s website is first and foremost a virtual library of medieval philosophical texts with a broad array of research tools that highlight interconnections among medieval philosophical writings. The website also incorporates technology that enables contemporary academics, and – in the future – educated laypeople, from diverse backgrounds to discuss these medieval texts in several languages. Finally, Intellectual Encounters aims to promote greater academic collaboration through a series of related graduate courses and research programs to take place at universities in the U.S., Europe, and the Middle East.

  • Islam in the Horn of Africa
  • Islam in the Horn of Africa - A Comparative Literary Approach aims to provide a pilot study of the Islamic history in Africa as it is reflected in the literary traditions of the Horn of Africa (Ethiopia, Eritrea, Djibouti, Somalia). Funded by the ERC for the period 2013-2018, it will identify and classify the literary works circulating in the area, making previously unknown texts widely accessible. A growing digital research environment for African Islamic literature, African Islamic biography and African Islamic geography shall additionally serve as an important tool for further research.

  • Islamic Manuscripts at Michigan
  • Rational Sciences in Islam: An Initiative for the Study of Philosophy and the Mathematical Sciences in Islam
  • The Schedula diversarum artium – a digital critical Edition
  • The Schedula-Portal provides the opportunity of consulting the three editions by Ilg, Escalopier, and Dodwell, as well as the digital versions of the manuscripts in an interconnected ordering structure.

  • Sharing Ancient Wisdoms (SAWS)
  • The aim of the SAWS project is to present and analyse the tradition of wisdom literatures in Greek and Arabic. Throughout antiquity and the Middle Ages collections of wise or useful sayings were created and circulated, as a practical response to the cost and inaccessibility of full texts in a manuscript age; the project will focus on those which collected moral and social advice.
