T.E. Lawrence, the Arab Revolt, and World War I in the Middle East
March 19 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Calvert will examine World War I’s dark inheritance in the Middle East. Drawing on a rich cast of characters – T.E. Lawrence (“Lawrence of Arabia”), the Hashemite princes of the Arab Revolt, and British and French colonial officials – the talk will bring to life the making of the modern Middle East.
A Creighton University Professor of History, Calvert will explain how the post-war imperial carve-up laid the foundations of future conflict and poisoned relations between the Middle East and West.
In addition to Calvert’s program, volunteers from various organizations will staff tables throughout the Center to share information about past and present genocides, including Armenia, Bosnia, Cambodia, Congo, Darfur, World War II, Native Americans and Rwanda. Social-action tables will promote organizations that are helping genocide victims. Doors will open at noon; the event will end at 4 p.m.
