The Formation of Turkey, 1923
November 14, 2023 7:45 PM - 9:00 PM at Zoom only
Lecture: Professor Reşat Kasaba
In 2023 Turkey celebrates its centenary as a key player in world politics. Discover the fascinating history surrounding its formation in 1923 following the disintegration of the Ottoman Empire at the end of the First World War. It is a powerful story combining economic history, state-society relations, migration, ethnicity and nationalism; and the vision of specific men such as Mustafa Kemal Atatürk.
An expert in the history and politics of the Middle East, Professor Reşat Kasaba has lectured at the Henry M.Jackson School of International Studies at the University of Washington for over 30 years and was its director from 2010 to 2020. Regularly approached by US local and regional media for insights into some of the world’s most pressing issues, Kasaba has written and edited seven books and over 40 articles and opinion pieces.
