Centre for Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies, University of Bergen

Short description

The Centre for Middle Eastern and Islamic studies at the University of Bergen (Senter for Midtausten- og islamske studiar, SMI) was created in 1988 to coordinate work on various aspects of the Islamic world within the humanities and social sciences; as well as to be gateway between the research groups in Bergen and the outside world. The University of Bergen has also been involved in digital preservation projects in Sudan, notably with the audio-visual archives of the Sudan Radio and Television Corporation. The university has a substantial Sudan collection in its library, including some archival material, and the Mahmoud Salih collection (online resource).
