INTERGENERATIONAL DYNAMICS OF VULNERABILITY: Dynamics of Vulnerability and Traumatic Affect

Dynamics of Vulnerability and Traumatic Affect

 

Continuing along the lines of a previous series of lectures for early career researchers, Cross-Cultural Encounters, Traumatic Affect and Paths of Remembrance, we launch a new series of lectures discussing the input of vulnerability in American culture and the spirit of social justice by delving into trauma narratives, complicated historical legacies, present challenges, and paths of future development. Our aim is to hereby develop a forum for discussing, sharing and archiving research materials in our adjacent fields of research, for developing networks of collaboration. Our guest lecturers are early career Romanian and foreign researchers specializing in various interdisciplinary, cutting-edge fields of scholarship such as trauma and memory studies, Holocaust and genocide studies, (post)communist studies etc. This series of lectures is organized within the  PNII-RU-TE-2014-4-0051 project, Intergenerational Dynamics of Vulnerability in American Trauma Narratives, a project funded by the Romanian National Council for Scientific Research (UEFISCDI).
