Voices from Syria: A Conversation with Author Wendy Pearlman
- Monday 13 November 2017
- 5:30PM - 7:45PM
In the ongoing Syrian Civil War nearly 500,000 citizens have been killed and millions more have been injured and displaced. Both land and property have been destroyed. Cultural heritage destruction has become both a by-product and a tactic of the ongoing war. Join this heartbreaking, but necessary, conversation with Wendy Pearlman, Associate Professor of Political Science at Northwestern University and author of We Crossed a Bridge and It Trembled: Voices from Syria, a collection of intimate testimonies from Syrian men and women whose lives have been transformed by revolution, war, and flight. Following the program guests can visit the Museum’s special exhibition Cultures in the Crossfire: Stories from Syria and Iraq. A cash bar and optional book-signing follow the event.
Admission (includes reception): $35; with book $55. Penn Museum and World Affairs Council members: $20; with book $40. Students (with full-time valid school ID) and Young Friends Members of the World Affairs Council: $10; with book $30.
