About The Event

On November 12th, at 3:00 pm, join the Birmingham Public Library Archives in the Arrington Auditorium, for a lecture by Dr. Annalisa J.K. Devries of Samford University. Dr. Devried will present "World War I and the Making of the Modern Middle East."

World War I transformed the region we know today as the Middle East, expanding some empires while others crumbled, creating new borders, and forging new 
political identities. Dr. DeVries will examine accounts from Maadi-Tura, an Egyptian prisoner of war camp, to explain how the war experience created new points of conflict, particularly as the Ottoman Empire fell and the British and French looked to assert authority over the region.

Programs are free and open to the public.
