Building up One Empire while Tearing Down Another: Scholars, Missionaries and Spies in the Ottoman Middle East
Conditions of Use:
No Strings Attached
Rating

This module explores the careers of British archaeologist T.E. Lawrence and Czech scholar Alois Musil. Both men were scholars, but also agents for their respective governments. As with many figures active in the age of European colonialism, Lawrence and Musil created an important intellectual legacy, but their value as contemporary witnesses is diminished somewhat by their imperial outlook and subsequent inability to attain any approximation of objectivity.
