There is so much going on at Fletcher these days that I can hardly highlight every event, but my good pal, Prof. Leila Fawaz has recently published a new book and it’s such a useful historical perspective on current events that I want to bring to readers’ attention her talk tomorrow. Here’s the announcement. If you’re visiting Fletcher, I hope you’ll attend.
Please join the Ginn library as we welcome
to discuss her new book
Friday, April 3rd, 2015, 2:30– 4:00pm
Ginn Library Reading Room
With introductory remarks from Prof. Jeswald Salacuse
Refreshments will be served and a book-signing reception will follow in the Fares Center.
The Great War transformed the Middle East, bringing to an end four hundred years of Ottoman rule in Arab lands, while giving rise to the Middle East as we know it today. A century later, the experiences of ordinary men and women during those calamitous years have faded from memory. A Land of Aching Hearts traverses ethnic, class, and national borders to recover the personal stories of the civilians and soldiers who endured this cataclysmic event.
Leila Tarazi Fawaz is Issam M. Fares Professor of Lebanese and Eastern Mediterranean Studies at Tufts University.
