Afterwar: Veterans from a World in Conflict
Over the course of her fifteen-year project called Afterwar, documentary photojournalist Lori Grinker has traveled to thirty countries to investigate the aftereffects of conflicts spanning the past hundred years—from World War I to the War in Iraq. The project reveals how people find themselves in war, what happens to them there, and the marks that remain when the fighting is over. In this illustrated lecture, Grinker will show photographs, read some of her interviews, and share personal anecdotes from this journey around the world, after war.
