“Experiencing and Remembering Cultural Trauma”
on 12/4/20 from 12:00pm-1:30pm EST.
As illness and deaths mount and COVID-19 continues to exact its toll, there is no question that we are experiencing a cultural trauma of enormous magnitude and globality. The time is right for asking: What does it mean for a community as a whole to experience trauma? How does the community represent the trauma, both as it is unfolding and in the future? How will it remember the trauma in the future? How will these memories affect future experiences?
