The Syrian civil war has produced one of the largest refugee flows since World War II; over four million Syrians have fled the country, and nearly twice that number are internally displaced. Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, and Iraq are hosting the vast majority of the Syrian refugees, but tens of thousands of Syrians are moving into Europe seeking asylum.
Perhaps no one is better prepared to help sift through the crisis than Rochelle Davis, an associate professor of cultural anthropology, director of Georgetown University’s master’s program in Arab studies, and this year’s Ivan and Janice Stone Lecturer at Beloit College. Davis has spent her academic career studying refugees. Her most recent work looks at currently displaced Syrians and the Iraqi refugees who fled to Jordan and Syria in 2005. Her lecture is titled, “The Syrian Refugee Crisis: Changing the Narrative.”
