Lawrence of Arabia (at Mary Winspear Centre)


Course description

Last year marked the 100th anniversary of TE Lawrence’s triumphant march into Damascus, and the birth of modern Arabia. Through the use of maps, artifacts and photographs we will trace the life of Lawrence of Arabia with a particular focus on the role of cartography, geography and strategy in the Arab Revolt. We will examine Lawrence’s personal recollections in Seven Pillars of Wisdom, study his contributions to the secret intelligence files of the Arab Bulletin, and read some of his personal letters. In addition we’ll explore some of Lawrence’s unpublished maps and field notes which are not publicly available but were recently examined in the British Library by your instructor.
