"Middle East Banking in the 20th Century" draws on UTL's unique Middle East banking ephemera collection. Much of the collection was donated by UT Government Professor Emeritus Clement M. Henry. The collection includes pamphlets, bank reports, directories, handbooks, and scholarly studies of Middle East banking, in Arabic, Turkish, Persian, English, French, and German. This exhibit will interest those concerned with international banking and finance in the 20th century, Middle East or Islamic banking practices, and the political economy of the Middle East.
Two exhibits are on-view: in-person at the Scholars Commons in the Perry-Castañeda Library, and online at the UT Libraries Digital exhibits.
The in-person exhibit runs from November 1, 2022 until January 4, 2023.
