Brownbag Lecture: The Ottoman Twilight in the Arab Lands: Turkish Memories and Testimonials of the Great War
AKSB 903, Beirut campus
The English Department is hosting a series of lunchtime lectures on different topics in literature, linguistics and related areas from mid-March through mid-April. The events are part of the department’s Brownbag Lunch Series, so named because they take place over lunch, and attendees are encouraged to bring their own food.
History Professor Selim Deringil will focus on an in-depth insider’s view of five people and how they experienced the war in Lebanon, Syria and what was then known as the land of Hijaz.
