Professor Wendy Pearlman will present her book, "We Crossed a Bridge and It Trembled: Voices from Syria," an oral history of the Syrian conflict based on interviews that she has conducted with more than 400 displaced Syrians across the Middle East and Europe since 2012. Using exclusively Syrians’ own words, the book is a mosaic of stories and reflections that seeks to express the human dimension of the Syrian uprising, war, and refugee experience. Like the book, her talk will chronicle the origins and evolution of the Syrian conflict through the stories of ordinary people who have lived and been transformed by its unfolding, and thereby place the forced migration of millions of Syrians in its larger historical and political context.
Books will be available for purchase and signing.
