Carnet de recherche: Abdel Qader Amer

June 21, 2021: I worked today again in the Center for Documents, Manuscripts and Bilad al-Sham Studies in the University of Jordan- Amman. The Center lets me look at a wide corpus of archives about Iraq during the Ottoman and British periods. It is the most significant source for my research here in Jordan. It contains most issues of Baghdad, Basra, and Mosul Salnames, and many publications of the British National Archives, such as Records of Iraq 1914-1966 (15 Volume), Political Diaries of the Arab World: Iraq 1920–1965 (8 Volume). On this visit, my focus was to take pictures of the catalogs of the archival collections I refer to in my research.
