Laura Briggs- RITM Distinguished Speaker Series

Professor Briggs is an expert on U.S. and international child welfare policy and on transnational and transracial adoption. Briggs’ most recent book, Taking Children: A History of American Terror (University of California Press, 2020), examines the 400-year-old history of the United States’ use of taking children from marginalized communities—from the taking of Black and Native children during America’s founding to the Donald Trump’s policy of family separation for Central American migrants and asylum seekers at the U.S./Mexico border—as a violent tool for political ends.

PRFDHR Seminar: On War and Architecture: A Tale of a Syrian City, Dr. Ammar Azzouz

Since 2011, the war in Syria has reshaped the lives of millions of Syrians with the displacement of over fourteen million people—more than half the population—inside and outside Syria, and the severe destruction of architecture. In Homs, the third largest city in Syria, entire neighbourhoods have been turned into rubble, destroying the familiar and reshaping the urban, social and cultural fabric of the city.
