Border Crossings: Return to Iraq

September 14, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm


IMG_20160612_110030242Jill Weber first visited Erbil, Iraq just weeks after the ISIS invasion of Mosul in 2014. Two years later – as the Peshmerga prepare to help re-take Mosul – she made a return visit. Join Jill  for an intimate conversation about Iraqi Kurdistan and the changes wrought by two years of ISIS aggression at its doorstep.  We’ll look at street art, militarization, food, refugees, and more.

Border Crossings is a program of the Geographical Society of Philadelphia that  aims to humanize people and places around the world through substantive presentations and conversations with those intimate with the cultures, in a casual setting with a cash bar.
