The historian Hayden White has argued that historical truth is always constructed through the narratives crafted by historians. According to White, history is a not a recollection of facts. Instead, it is the construction of historians’ discourse. You can analyze any event in Middle Eastern history covered in a source from post-1920. Please find an account (academic journal article, blog post, video, etc.), in English, of some piece of post-1920s Middle Eastern history.
Please be sure to include the link or citation for your source in your paper.
In an essay of 2-4 pages, I want you to analyze how your account constructs or contributes to historical memory about the period. In order to do this you must include:
• Information on your source (What is it? Who created it? What seems to be their purpose in creating the account?)
• What is the lens used by the source to interpret the historical events?
• How is this similar or different to the information we have learned in class or
from the textbook?
• What would you add or take away from the source if you were going to tell the
story of the event? Why?
