I am an Associate Professor in literature who has been doing cultural studies/ anthropology research in Southern Oman for over a decade. I teach at a small university in Salalah and am interested in working with a graduate student, academic or independent researcher on a collection of folktales collected in the 1970s and recently published in English. The folktales were tape-recorded and originally spoken in an unwritten language. I have extensive background in the culture the folktales originated from and would like to work with someone with experience in categorizing, analyzing and contextualizing Arabian folktales with the view of publishing a scholarly article or chapter, presenting at a conference, supervising a master’s thesis, and/or including these folktales in the curriculum of Arabian folktales.
