This Week: A Modern History of Jerusalem; Searching for Iraq’s Artistic Life

Wednesday March 31, 2010

This week on Voices of the Middle East and North Africa, Khalil Bendib speaks with Director of the Institute of Jerusalem Studies  and Birzeit University Professor of sociology Salim Tamari about an essay published in the Jerusalem quarterly titled “Jerusalem’s Ottoman modernity,” in which he depicts a very different Jerusalem around the turn of the 20th century than the one we are familiar with today.
