A conversation with photographer Lori Grinker, Iraqi Refugee Ali Rawaf and Dr. Les Roberts
For the past eight years, the Iraqi people have been forced to flee their homes and their country, creating one of the largest exoduses of refugees in the history of the Middle East. Hear about the personal experiences from:
Ali Rawaf, a 20 year old Iraqi refugee and currently a student at the University of Texas at Austin, who left Iraq at age 15 after being threatened due to his writings as a blogger within Iraq.
Dr. Les Roberts is an epidemiologist who has led over 50 surveys in 17 countries, mostly measuring mortality in times of war. He is the author of the 2004 report estimating Iraqi civilians casualties at 100,000 Iraqi that drew ire from the Bush administration, who insisted it was much lower.
Lori Grinker is the author of the exhibit currently on display at Fovea "Nothing Like My Home". A 15-year documentary project on veterans of war from thirty countries entitled "AFTERWAR: Veterans From A World In Conflict" by Ms. Grinker was both an successful traveling exhibit and hardcover book.
