Wendy Pearlman will join POMEPS to discuss her new book, We Crossed a Bridge and it Trembled: Voices from Syria (Harper Collins, 2017) on Thursday September 28, 2017 at 5:30pm. The product of hundreds of interviews conducted over four years, this book eloquently relates the stories of Syrians uprooted and displaced by a violent conflict. Pearlman is an associate professor of political science at Northwestern University. She will be joined by discussants: Omar Dahi of Hampshire College, Jeffrey Isaac of Indiana University Bloomington, Jillian Schwedler of Hunter College CUNY, and Lisa Wedeen of the University of Chicago. The discussion will be moderated by POMEPS director Marc Lynch of George Washington University, and there will be time reserved for audience questions.

Copies of the book will be available for students.
