4 March 2019: this week, the Ottoman History Podcast has released an episode featuring my new book, Between the Ottomans and the Entente. In this interview, we discuss the Syrian and Lebanese mahjar during the First World War and the early French Mandate of the 1920s, touching on migration, travel restriction, displacement, and the Mandate’s attempt to partition the mahjar from the Mashriq.
The episode and its supplemental materials can be accessed via OHP at this link: http://www.ottomanhistorypodcast.com/2019/03/ottomans-entente.html?fbclid=IwAR0ri7je3SQoUoJpTz4ajRVgXWDJR5oAUEiqy84wa1HQtyDxr1wUF0_Y_A0
