Video: Devin Naar lecture “From Empires to Nation-States”

November 24, 2014


The Great War irrevocably transformed the map of Europe and the Middle East by provoking the dissolution of the major empires of the Hapsburgs, Romanovs and Ottomans. This lecture by Jewish Studies Assistant Professor Devin Naar focuses on the final years of the Ottoman Empire, the role of the war in galvanizing new nation-states in the region and the cataclysmic impact of these processes on diverse populations. Part of the Great War Lecture Series at UWTV.
