In this talk, speakers Janet Watson and Ali al Mahri interrogate the concept of beauty in relation to Southern Arabia, with a focus on Dhofar. They propose that beauty stems not from one single object or concept of objective beauty, but rather from the rich juxtaposition of objects and concepts of difference.

Janet Watson, academic in Southern Arabian languages and co-director of the Centre for Endangered Languages, Cultures and Ecosystems at the University of Leeds, currently hosts online workshops on Language and/or Nature in Southern Arabia through Zoom. The next workshops are on 7th July and 14th July. Please email for more details.
