Jerusalem, a modern history; also, in search of Iraq's artistic life
Voices of the Middle East and North Africa
In tonight's program, 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.
Later in the program, Malihe Razazan speaks with Hadani Ditmars, a co-editor of New Internationalist, who went to Iraq in February of this year to explore whatever is left of the art in post-invasion Iraq.
