Stitching Syria; Crafting National Identities Through the Hands of Women
Thursday, January 18; 4:30 p.m.

Women are integral to crafting the visual landscape of Syrian identities from the Qalamoun Mountains to the Suqs of Aleppo. Maggie Salughter, curator of "A Different Look at Syria," will discuss how the textiles and adornment of Syria offer an intimate perspective into national, confessional, and local identities of a country currently framed by international media strictly in the context of its devastating conflict.
