An Ottoman History of World War I

Talk

WHEN November 30, 2014
6:30-8pm WHERE NYUAD Campus, Conference Center WHO NYU Abu Dhabi Institute Open to the Public

The Ottoman front of the First World War is typically remembered from a context of European intervention, including the schemes of T.E. Lawrence, the diplomacy of Sykes and Picot, and the promises of Lord Arthur Balfour. But what about the Ottomans themselves? This lecture focuses on a local history of the war; one in which the Near Eastern theater, the Ottoman state, and the various Ottoman peoples become subjects in their own right.

Simultaneous Arabic Interpretation will be provided.
