Syrian Cultural Heritage in the Crossfire: Past, Present, and Continuity
Syria's cultural heritage has fallen prey to conflict between regime militias and armed rebels across the country. While the media has condemned the damage to cultural heritage sites, many ordinary Syrians perceive the focus on cultural heritage as indifference to the loss of thousands of lives. Dr. Salam al Kuntar, Visiting Assistant Professor of Anthropology, speaks about this damage, which she views as an acute disruption of a dynamic past in a country with living historical places and traditions. Sponsored by the Penn Cultural Heritage Center. Free admission. For more information, call 215.746.4475.
