Dr. Naseem Abdullah Alotaibi, an assistaant professor of English Literature, presented a paper on Saturday March 27, 2021, entitled “Refashioning the 'Other' in George Sale’s Translation of the Quran (1734)” in a conference organised by the College of Literatures, Languages and Cultures at University of Edinburgh, United Kingdom (26-29 March).
