Getting the Middle East Wrong: scholars, politics and US foreign policy

Professor Zachary Lockman, New York University, will give a public lecture at LSE on Monday 4 December. His lecture is entitled Getting the Middle East Wrong: scholars, politics and US foreign policy.

As the Middle East lurches from one crisis to another, a noted historian of the region offers us a chance to get beyond media punditry in understanding the conflict-ridden interaction between Western thinking about the 'Orient', geopolitics, the war on terror, and Islamism.

Zachary Lockman is professor of modern Middle East history and chair of the Department of Middle Eastern Studies at New York University.

Dr John Chalcraft, LSE, will chair this event, which is generously supported by the Sir Patrick Gillam Lecture Fund.

Getting the Middle East Wrong: scholars, politics and US foreign policy is on Monday 4 December 2006 at 6.30pm in the Old Theatre, Old Building, LSE, Houghton Street, London WC2A. This event is free and open to all with no ticket required.
