1917-2017: The Rolling World War I Centenary, and the Making of the Modern Middle East (at Mary Winspear Centre)


Course description

Amidst the ongoing centenary commemorations of key World War I episodes, one is struck by numerous respects in which the War helped to lay groundwork for present-day convulsions within the Middle East. Indeed, a 1916 landmark like the Sykes-Picot Accord has now become something of a household term, given the proclamations by ISIS that the treaty exemplifies how European colonial malfeasance helped to artificially construct the region’s nation-states. 1917 brought a series of further, profoundly significant events, on whose enduring importance this talk will focus -- from the United States’ emerging role as an interventionist global power, to the Balfour Declaration revealing Britain’s support for the Zionist movement in contested Palestine.
