Beyond the fairy tales and exotic images, Zanzibar and Oman are real destinations, each with its own history, culture and proud people – people like Sayyida Salme, Princess of Oman and Zanzibar. After becoming Emily Ruete, she would be the first Arab woman to publish a book.  The class will focus on her great-great-granddaughter Andrea Emily Stumpf’s newest and most accurate translation of these Memoirs, to be discussed with all their striking drama, bright moments and dark truths.

This class will be taught in conversation with Andrea Emily Stumpf.
