Three lectures on Palestine in the first half of the twentieth century

Three lectures will take place with the topic of Cultural Diplomacy and Archaeology in British Mandate Palestine. These lectures are part of the NWO CrossRoads Project: European Cultural Diplomacy and Arab Christians in Palestine 1918-1948.

The lectures will start off with Dr. Karène Sanchez Summerer and Dr. Sary Zananiri, who will discuss the Dutch photographer Frank Scholten, who made thousands of photographs during his trip to Palestine in 1921-1923. In addition, they will talk about the École Biblique and how this institution has collected pictures of ‘Biblical Palestine’. They will be followed by Mathilde Sigalas. She will discuss the role that Western institutions have played in realising Western archaeological interests in Palestine. The lectures will be concluded by Dr. Sarah Irving, who will talk about the role that Palestinian Christians have played in forming archaeological institutions in Palestine during the Mandate years.
