High Noon: Sykes-Picot and the Modern Middle East

November 16, 2016 @ 12:00 pm

From leading scholars to leaders of nations and terrorist organizations, blame for the seemingly perpetual conflict in the Middle East has been laid on the doorstep of a 100-year old secret agreement bearing the names of a British aristocrat and a French career diplomat. Dr. Kalisman, a historian of the Modern Middle East, will discuss the history of the Sykes-Picot agreement, and its impact on the borders and conflicts in the region. She will also contrast this history with narratives surrounding Sykes-Picot’s significance and our age’s attraction to mapping and remapping the world.
