After a long break, we are very pleased to resume Imagining Arabia. The challenges of teaching and researching through the last two years have been substantial, but we are making progress with the research and hope to be bringing you more snippets from the archives as 2022 progresses.
There is good news in the research team: Josh King has an article forthcoming in the Journal of Religious History on NZ soldiers encounters with Islam during WWII, and has become a dad! Kate has published an article with her Honours Student, Emma Ward, on New Zealand women's pages after the armistice in First World War Studies. With the borders opening, she is looking forward to getting back to the archives in Australia.
We are re-starting the blog with a post about the crusading imagery in the war memorial window at Victoria University of Wellington | Te Herenga Waka.
