World War I in the Middle East

A two-week, residential institute for 28 K-12 teachers on World War I in the Middle East and its impact on the region.

The Liberty Memorial Association, dba the National WWI Museum and Memorial (Museum and Memorial), with the University of Arizona Center for Middle Eastern Studies and support from the Duke-UNC Consortium for Middle East Studies, proposes a two-week, Level 1 Summer Institute (Institute) for 28 K-12th grade educators. An interdisciplinary humanities program, the Institute will go beyond the traditional Western-centered emphasis on diplomacy and troop movements, focusing instead on the enduring impact of World War I on the Middle East. The topics will include the impact of the war on Ottoman soldiers, the Middle Eastern home fronts, women’s issues, disease/public health, and the development of nationalist narratives in the Arab lands, in Turkey, and among Ottoman minority groups. The Institute, held at the Museum and Memorial, in Kansas City, Missouri, from July 10 to 22, 2022.
