What is Arab nationalism? Where did it come from and how did it transition between the Ottoman Empire and its successor states? How has the topic been studied and how is the topic being studied today? These were the guiding questions for the 2nd Annual MUBIT Doctoral Workshop in Late- and Post-Ottoman Studies at the University of Basel on September 11-12, 2014. Professor Maurus Reinkowski, Dr. Selen Etingü, and Alp Yenen from Middle Eastern Studies of the Department of Social Sciences in Basel organized the workshop.
I'm posting here in the hopes of finding historians interested in dialoguing with me on my upcoming piece, 'A History of the Middle East.'
This film, which will be the first Arabic dance feature, is the story of a Syrian woman who goes back in time and into the future to create the history of the Middle East.
