On 29-30 April 2019, Ostour – in collaboration with the Department of History at the Doha Institute for Graduate Studies – held a seminar titled Arab Historians And Their Sources in Doha, Qatar, with the participation of academics from various Arab universities. The seminar considered four main themes and two case studies. The first theme was archive experiences, the importance and difficulties of working out how to approach the archive and the importance of foreign archives to studying many topics in Arab history. The second theme was the variety of sources available to historians. The third theme was modern history. The fourth theme was otherness and sources, within which participants considered travel writing in which the journey itself takes centre stage for the historian and travel becomes a source for writing the history of the other. The first case study was Ottoman sources and how Arab historians have approached them. The second case study was the history of Palestine. Here researchers discussed historians and researchers' approaches to sources in the history of Palestine in various periods and within various fields of study. In this issue, part two of the proceedings of the seminar are made available, discussing historians and researchers’ experiences with diverse historical sources: travel, the relationship of minorities with otherness, the history of modern times, and how Ottoman and Moroccan sources ignored one another.
