The Department of Near & Middle Eastern Civilizations & The Department of History presents

Rebel, Ruler, Renegade – The Life of Enver Pasha (1881-1922)

Described by the Washington Herald in 1915 as "the most fascinating figure" of World War I, Enver Pasha has long been regarded as one of the most controversial figures of that war and indeed Middle Eastern history. This talk will trace the arc of Enver's life from his emergence as the hero rebel of the Young Turk Revolution of 1908 through his time as Ottoman Minister of War and triumvir in World War I to his battlefield death as an anti-imperialist renegade in Central Asia. It will argue that understanding Enver's life is essential to understanding the emergence of the modern Middle East.

This event is free and open to all. Registration is not required. For further information, please contact Joseph Hawker
