Middle East Studies Center Summer Institute for Educators - Making the Modern Middle East: World War I and its Aftermath

World War I was possibly the single greatest catalyst for change on a global scale in world history. This transformative event marked the end of 19th century institutions and the beginning of a new era. The war’s impact on the Middle East was profound, as the Ottoman Empire gave way to a European colonial project that completely changed the shape of the region. As we approach the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the conflict, it is important to prepare ourselves and our students to participate in the public dialogue about this important period in history.

Making the Modern Middle East: World War I and its Aftermath is a weekend workshop that explores the Great War in the region through the lens of literature, art, and history. Participants will learn about the War from scholars and experts in the field and receive valuable resources to support teaching about WWI and the Middle East in their classrooms.
