The College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences is home to a center focused upon a life many of us could not even imagine. Brian Barber, PhD, of the Center for the Study of Youth and Political Conflict, has visited Gaza for research several times. He has based his work on long residencies and visits with families in and near refugee camps in the Gaza Strip since the early 2000s. Barber, founding director of the center and a New America Fellow, is currently writing a book based upon his research of two particular families with other subcharacters involved. During his most recent visit, Barber connected with these families for updates in his research. His intentions for the book is to portray Gaza and it’s history along with the families.
