In this talk, professor Wendy Pearlman, from Northwestern University, will present her new book “We Crossed a Bridge and It Trembled: Voices from Syria,” a collection of testimonials from more than 400 displaced Syrians across the Middle East, Europe, and the United States since 2012. Called “essential reading” by the New York Times, the book is a mosaic of stories and reflections that express the human dimension of the Syrian uprising, war, and refugee experience, exclusively through the words of ordinary people transformed by these events.

NEW COURSE OFFERING–GR220: Afro-Culture as Knowledge Culture: Black Knowledge Production in Germany

Please be aware of this new course being offered in block 6 by Visiting Scholar, Artist, and Activist Dr. Natasha Kelly. “This course will place the past, present, and future of Black Germans in a global context through studying the life and works of Black scholars and activists W.E.B. Du Bois, Audre Lorde, and May Ayim. Our class will interrogate current political debates about race and the “racial turn” in Germany and challenge the supposedly objective nature of Eurocentric knowledge production. Drawing on narratives of colonial de_perception, we will critically examine the persistence of coloniality in German society and media. Furthermore, we will consider the role that coloniality has played in preventing the incorporation of Black knowledge into the scholarly archive and rendering a Black perspective on the world impossible.”
