Struggles & Resilience: Everyday Life of Syrian Women Refugees

The untold stories of Syrian women refugees from that country’s civil war and the human toll Karen Culcasiare the subject of a lecture at Central Washington University on May 8, at 7 p.m. in Science room 147.

Karen Culcasi, an associate professor of geography at West Virginia University, will share her lecture, Struggles & Resilience: The Everyday Lives of Syrian Women Refugees in Jordan. The presentation is free and open to the public.

Culcasi has interviewed Syrian refugees for several years in the vast Zaatari camp in Jordan, making her research not only unique, but relevant. As last month’s suspected chemical weapons attack by the Syrian government and the subsequent US-led bombing in Syria showed, the conflict that began there in 2011, continues upending the lives of millions of people.

Culcasi’s research primarily focuses on Syrian women, and her talk will highlight their challenges, resilience, and the human aspect of war.
