Flight from Syria

Refugee Stories

Flight from Syria: Refugee Stories features the writing and photography of nine Pulitzer Center grantees– journalists who reported on Syrian refugees between 2012 and 2015. Their travels took them from Syria to Sweden, and from crowded camps to cramped apartments in city suburbs. Each of the journalists– Hugh Eakin, Lauren Gelfond Feldinger, Stephen Franklin, Joanna Kakissis, Alia Malek, Holly Pickett, Alisa Roth, Alice Su, and Selin Thomas_ lends a unique perspective. Originally published in Al Jazeera, BBC News, Guernica, In These Times, Marketplace, NPR, The Atlantic and The New York Review of Books, these stories tell of an abandoned homeland, an indifferent world, and an uncertain future. They trace the history of one of the biggest displacements of modern times– providing a testament to the suffering and courage of those who fled. Edited by Kem Knapp Sawyer Desiged by Evey Wilson

Ecological Civilization is a compendium of the talks and proceedings of the International Conference on Ecological Environment. It took place at the Yale Center Beijing and was o-sponsored by the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, Communication University of China, and the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies. This e-book begins with an introductory essay by Jon Sawyer, founding director of the Pulitzer Center, and features presentations by Dean Liu Chang, director of the School of Journalism at Communication University of China, and by Mary Evelyn Tucker, co-director of the Yale Forum on Religion and Ecology. Ecological Civilization includes photos and videos by Pulitzer Center grantees Sean Gallagher, Sim Chi Yin, Shi Lihong, and Gary Marcuse.

Everyday Africa Curriculum

A Pulitzer Center guide to using the "Everyday Africa" project in the classroom

<p> <span style=" font-size: 16px">Everyday Africa, a collection of images shot on mobile phones across the continent, is an attempt to re-direct focus toward a more accurate understanding of what the majority of Africans experience on a day-to-day basis: normal life. Conceived by Peter DiCampo and Austin Merrill, and featuring numerous contributing photographers, the project is a response to the common media portrayal of the African continent as a place consumed by war, poverty, and disease. As journalists who have lived and worked on the continent for years at a time or who are native to Africa, we at Everyday Africa find the extreme not nearly as prevalent as the familiar, the everyday. </span><span style=" font-size: 16px">-Info page, Everyday Africa website </span></p> <p> <span style=" font-size: 16px">This curriculum was designed by Everyday Africa's co-founders and various educational partners. It is intended to be scalable and flexible for the needs of a wide variety of students. </span></p>

Cancer’s Global Footprint

The Economics of a Disease

<p>Worldwide, more people die from cancer than from HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria &ndash; combined. Yet until recently, cancer was almost ignored by the global health groups, charitable organizations and governments working to improve conditions in developing countries. Reporter Joanne Silberner looks at cancer issues in Uganda, India and Haiti. How do people experience cancer when they have no money for care, or when no care is available? What are the causes of cancer in the developing world? Are there inexpensive ways of detecting and treating cancer, and are these ways acceptable to the populations they&rsquo;re aimed at? This project was supported by <em>PRI&rsquo;s The World&reg; </em>and the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting.</p>

Between the Lines

Facial Tattoos and the Chaouia

<div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><p>Sepia-tinted photos from over 50 years ago show striking facial tattoos of women from indigenous populations in Algeria. But documentation of these women has faded like the aged photographs. In Algeria today the actual practice of facial tattooing is disappearing along with the older generation. One particular indigenous group losing this cultural marker is the Chaouia of the Aur&egrave;s Mountains in northeastern Algeria. This project from Pulitzer Center student fellow Yasmin Bendaas captures incredible portraits and stories from Chaouia women and investigates the origins and disappearance of tattooing, especially with the advent of literacy and Islam&#39;s spread. &nbsp;</p></div></div></div>
