We proudly present an evening lecture with Dana Ghazi: Altered Memories and Objects of Nostalgia in the Migrant Experience

Dana Ghazi was born and raised in Damascus, Syria before moving to the United States in 2002. She studied English Literature and Gender and Sexuality Studies for her undergrads and has a Master of Arts degree in Conflict Resolution and Peace Studies from Portland State University. Dana has worked with international programs focused on addressing major conflicts like the ones in Syria, Colombia and the Balkans and national programs focused on transforming structural violence, generational trauma and the role of the arts as a way for resistance and recovery during and post-conflict. Currently Dana works as an Arabic mental health counselor at the Intercultural Psychiatric Program with Oregon Health and Science University providing direct mental health services to refugees and victims of torture and war. Earlier this year, she joined the board of the Arab American Cultural Center of Oregon and was a cultural consultant and an actor in the play The Kiss. Free and open to the public.
