LMU’s Caloyeras Center Hosts Prof. Michelle Tusan


On Sunday, September 17, the Basil Caloyeras Center for Modern Greek Studies at Loyola Marymount University (LMU) hosted Professor Michelle Tusan’s lecture “How the Great War Ended: Making Peace on the Middle Eastern Front, 1918-1923” and the presentation of her new book “The Last Treaty: Lausanne and the End of the First World War in the Middle East”.

The event was co-hosted with the LMU History Department and the Consulate General of Greece in Los Angeles. Opening remarks were offered by the Consul General of Greece in Los Angeles, Ioannis Stamatekos.

Prof. Tusan talked about the peace process between the Allies and the Ottoman Empire and the plight of Greek, Armenian, and other minority populations who survived nearly 10 years of uninterrupted war when peace finally came in 1923.

Michelle Tusan is Professor of History at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Her previous publications include The British Empire and the Armenian Genocide (2017), Smyrna’s Ashes (2012) and Women Making News (2006).
