FORA.tv Speaker - Rashid Khalidi
Edward Said Professor of Arab Studies
Director of the Middle East Institute, Columbia University
Rashid Khalidi's research and teaching encompass the history of the modern Middle East, and in particular the countries of the southern and eastern Mediterranean, with an emphasis on the emergence of national identity, and the involvement of external powers in the region. He is particularly interested in the role of the press in the formation of new publics and new senses of community, in the place of education in the construction of identity, and in the way narratives of self and other have interacted over the past two centuries in this conflicted region.
