To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I Valencia College’s East Campus will host a series of six presentations about the Great War. We invite Valencia students, faculty, and staff to be part of this important and timely event beginning October 9 through November 13 every Tuesday from 1:00-2:15. The speakers will discuss diverse topics including World War I and its impact on the Middle East, the role of women, the culture of the Roaring Twenties, poetry, and the genre of the war film.

The Great War and the Creation of the Modern Middle East

Michael Savage, Professor of History

The aim of this presentation is to unravel the contemporaneous political machinations at play in order to throw light on the current difficult and volatile situation in the Middle East. The Middle East as defined today, emerged from decisions made by the Allies during and after the First World War, and it is of paramount importance to fully appreciate the hopes, fears, loves and hatreds, mistakes and misunderstandings that helped forge those decisions.
