We aspire to be the premier online hub for oral history in Qatar. We do not aim to record major events in Qatar’s history, but to focus on the “spaces” between them, and give our guests details about the history of Qatar that would not be found in most history books. We provide a clear picture of what Qatari people inherited from their ancestors through a collection of videos, images, and interviews, and give residents as well as visitors the opportunity explore the country’s past.

This website is an ongoing project for Technical and Business Writing students at Texas A&M at Qatar. It was first conceived in Spring 2015 by Instructional Professor Michael Telafici, and has been developed over several semesters. The main objective of the website is to introduce both residents, visitors, and foreigners to Qatari culture and popular history through interviews with long time Qatar residents.
