Research in Oman: the Swahili Speaking Omani

I've been in Muscat for two weeks now, conducting interviews and meeting different people who came back from Tanzania, Zanzibar, Kenya, Uganda and the Congo. Their stories and worldviews are AMAZING. Everything I expected and more. There is a rich dissertation/book project here waiting to be written. The multiple connections linking Oman and Zanzibar in the present day are truly interesting, and the role of East African heritage in contemporary Oman is also a fascinating question. I am sorry I cannot say more. I am compiling interviews at the moment and writing a Fulbright proposal...To be continued.
