Border Crossings - Life Behind the Veil, UAE vs. Iran with Dr. Sabrina deTurk

Border Crossings is a collaboration between EuroCircle and the Geographical Society of Philadelphia. We aim to humanize people and places around the world through substantive presentations and conversations with those intimate with the cultures, in a casual setting with a cash bar.

As an American living in Dubai and conducting research on visual culture of the Middle East, Dr. Sabrina deTurk has had the opportunity to explore and reflect on those cultures in ways not possible as an occasional tourist to the region.
Dr. De Turk will shed light on the ”real“ Iran through photographs from her recent exhibit, “Iran Unveiled”, as well as compare and contrast her experiences as a woman living and working in both UAE and Iran. Learn about common misconceptions on life, perspectives, and attitudes that both cultures have towards the West.
