Amidst the dashed dreams of the Arab spring, voices of everyday women and artists who have been continually resisting and seeking democratic change are often not heard over the din of the conflict. CSFD, in partnership with the Perkins Center, invites you to a special evening of conversation with Professor of English Kimberly Segall, author of Performing Democracy in Iraq and South Africa, Khawla Hadi, a translator for Iraqi-Syrian refugees at the trauma center at Lutheran Community Services Northwest, and Marwa al-Mtowaq, an Iraqi-American activist poet recently returned from Baghdad to discuss their visions of hope for the democracy in this region.
Monday, May 19, 7:00-8:00 PM, Upper Gwinn Commons, Reception to follow.
