International Association for the Study of Arabia
The International Association for the Study of Arabia, IASA, (formerly the British Foundation for the Study of Arabia) exists to promote research relating to the Arabian Peninsula and, in particular, its archaeology, history, epigraphy, languages, literature, art, culture, ethnography, geography, geology and natural history. It does this by:
– awarding research grants,
– producing its own publications and supporting others,
– disseminating news of new research and events connected with Arabia, and
– organizing lectures and conferences, in particular the annual Seminar for Arabian Studies.
