Making of the Modern Middle East, with Prof. Asher Susser
Date and time: May 21 at 6 pm Australian Western Standard Time (UTC+8)
The Middle East remains one of the most volatile regions in the world.
It is the birthplace of three great traditions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam.
It is the leading source of the world’s supply of crude oil.
Its recent history has been marred with conflict and wars that go beyond ethnic, sectarian and religious identities.
Join host Dr. Sherry Sufi as he discusses the complex story of this fascinating region with professor emeritus of Middle Eastern history Dr. Asher Susser of Tel Aviv University.
There will be opportunities to ask questions.
