On 19 March CNaM (http://www.cnam-network.cahss.ed.ac.uk/) are welcoming Wendy Pearlman (Northwestern University) to Edinburgh to discuss her book project, We crossed a bridge and it trembled, and LIVED has been invited to join the discussion. The book is a collection of first-hand testimonials that chronicles the Syrian rebellion, war, and refugee 'crisis', based on interviews with several hundred Syrians who have fled the carnage in their country for other parts of the Middle East or Europe. The book has received a fantastic reception and rave reviews in publications like the New York Times. By all accounts Wendy is also a fantastic speaker.
Joining Wendy to discuss the book will be Ann-Christin Wagner (PhD candidate, International Development), Katherine Baxter (Sociology & LIVED Project) and Jamie Allinson (Politics & IR).
Date: 19 March 2018
