– Arabic Studies International (ASI) was established to foster a greater understanding of the Arabic fields of study and to create collaboration among practitioners, translators, scholars, authors, teachers, and those interested in these fields.
As the organization grows to over 100 members, the organization plans on additional methods of increasing interaction and group learning. Plans currently include a blend of online and live sessions for discussion of current trends and topics. Members would be eligible for discounted registration at all organization events.
Visitors can join ASI for free, and search Arabic related jobs, network among their peers, add publications and photos, and help to promote the Arabic community.
Dina Elbahesh, ASI co-founder, announced “We are thrilled with the participation of so many professionals from around the world and are currently planning a special event. This will be announced as soon as details are finalized and will be the first of many events and conferences that we will host to promote the study of Arabic worldwide”.
