QNRF PR 0 2909

Doha: Since the development of satellite broadcasting, the role of TV has increased as a significant definer of national identity and people’s perception of themselves and the world around them. Across the world, TV broadcasting has formed a significant tool since its appearance in carrying content loaded with cultural, historical and national heritage. A typical way of looking at TV content that leads to the construction of a national identity and how TV content unifies nations is studying the way broadcasters report national celebrations for instance.

Research Outcome Seminar on Nutrition and Healthy Living

Food is a double-edged sword; it could be a source of nourishment and health, or a cause for illness and loss of quality of life. It all depends on our choice of food and eating behavior. The question is, how can we distinguish between healthy and unhealthy food, when both taste as good! Could apple, ginger, and tea reduce the risk of diabetes and its related complications?

Executive Director’s Message - November 2021

Understanding the Past, Tackling the Present, and Shaping the Future

QNRF PR 0 2168

The evolution of communities over millennia and how these communities interacted with each other has shaped the world we live in today. Studying how our ancestors lived, what their routines and dietary habits were, analyzing their migration patterns and their rituals contain important lessons for us and can help us better understand our societies and the challenges faced by them. The Arabian Peninsula has a rich history and a lot of it is yet to be discovered.

After the health sector, the education sector has been one of the most affected as delivery of education was disrupted worldwide. However, this also provided a window of opportunity to bring about a pedagogical shift to make education more accessible and enable our institutions to cope with unforeseen situations like the coronavirus pandemic.

Dr. Dena Al-Thani, Assistant Professor and the Director of Interdisciplinary Programs at the College of Science and Engineering at Hamad Bin Khalifa University, also saw this opportunity and set out to develop a solution for students in special education programs and centers- a task that came with its own set of unique challenges and requirements. To realize her ambition, Dr. Al-Thani successfully applied for a research grant under the inaugural cycle of the Rapid Response Call and was able to successfully develop an interactive online platform for autistic children.

Earlier this year, The Department of Archaeology at Qatar Museums (QM) announced the discovery of new archaeological remains in Asaila, located west of Qatar. The initial excavation and investigation date of this site is between 300 BCE and 300 CE, which makes it one of the oldest archaeological sites in the region. The excavation has unearthed the sacrificial grave of a camel along with tombs of people buried with their belongings. To learn more about how these remains can help our understanding of the past of the region and what it signifies for us today, we sit down with Dr. Faisal Abdullah Al Naimi, Head of Archaeology at Qatar Museums, and Dr. Ferhan Sakal, Head of Excavation and Site Management, for this month’s Research Matters.
