Times of Israel: Rare Israeli Bedouin audio archive digitized to boost study of nomadic society

Times of Israel: Rare Israeli Bedouin audio archive digitized to boost study of nomadic society. ” Leading Bedouin scholar Clinton Bailey has amassed hundreds of hours of recordings about the nomadic society’s poetry, history and legal system, in a career that began while jogging through Israel’s Negev desert. Bailey’s unique Arabic audio archive is now being transcribed and digitized by Israel’s National Library, a project aimed at enriching Bedouin scholarship in Israel, the Arab world and beyond.”
