Michael Provence, Ph.D.
Associate Professor and Director, Middle East Programs
Department of History—UC San Diego
"The Middle East Today and in the Recent Past"
Michael Provence teaches Middle East history. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Chicago in 2001. Provence was recently an Alexander von Humboldt fellow at the Zentrum Moderner Orient in Berlin, Germany. He is the current director of UCSD Middle East Programs.
His research focuses on the colonial and post-colonial Arab world, particularly popular insurgency and nationalism between the World Wars.
Provence's current project is a history of Arab East in the period of direct colonial rule between 1920 and 1950. The project views the period by understanding the rebellions in each of the new colonial states as part of a unified regional movement. The work explores both the shared Ottoman past of the region and the shared experience of colonial military occupation and martial law.
He lived and studied over the course of many years in several Middle Eastern countries, particularly Syria and Lebanon between 1998 and 2006. He returns as often as possible.
Sounding Board is a series of seven lectures during the academic year, the first Thursday at 12 noon, sponsored by UC San Diego Oceanids and the UC San Diego Faculty Club. Oceanids, faculty and friends meet at the UCSD Faculty Club in a specially designated room to eat lunch and listen to fascinating speakers. Lunch is $14.00 for guests and $10.00 for Faculty Club members (purchase required). Coffee and iced tea are provided in the meeting room. A parking permit can be obtained at the front desk. You can be sure of a lively discussion! You do not need to RSVP. Contact Judy Vacquier, firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
