The 20th Century: View from the Middle East
Middle East Historian Rashid Khalidi
April 26, 6–7 p.m.
How does the Middle East figure in the history of the 20th century? How can we re-view the history of the 20th century not from the hegemonic perspective of the United States or Europe? How can we get past Orientalism, which saw “the East” as a static entity repeating age-old patterns until the arrival of European modernity? Come hear a talk on how we can change these well-entrenched perspectives and view the 20th century from the Middle East.
