Decolonizing Trauma Studies: Trauma and Postcolonialism - 15 May 2015

updated: 
Monday, January 19, 2015 - 1:08pm
The University of Northampton School of the Arts, UK

This Symposium aims to explore the complex and contested relationship between Trauma Studies and postcolonial theory, focusing on the possibilities for creating a decolonized trauma theory that takes account of the suffering of minority groups and non-Western cultures, broadly defined as cultures beyond Western Europe and North America. Our symposium will build on the insights of, inter alia, Stef Craps's book, Postcolonial Witnessing, and will respond to his challenge to interrogate and move beyond a Eurocentric trauma paradigm.

Out of the Past and Into the Night: The Noir Vision in American Culture

Guest Editor: Doré Ripley, California State University, East Bay

When American movies made their way across the Atlantic after World War II, the French film critics couldn't help but notice their dark and brooding quality, dubbing them noir. Classic noir texts by authors like Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler featured characters that take on the big dark city as alienated, angst-ridden antiheroes.

The image of the river in Latin/o American literature has been multiple and varied. The slow, meandering streams of nostalgia, the raging currents of conflict or the stagnant waters of social decay are just a few of the ways in which the river has become a potent symbol and inspiration to many of the region's writers.
