updated: 
Tuesday, December 16, 2014 - 10:31am
Graduate English Organization at the University of Texas--San Antonio

What does social healing look like in its most effective manifestations? How are we responding to the violence(s) and systemic oppression(s) that pervade our communities? How have we and how can we continue to attend to the real needs and social ills of all our respective communities? What strategies affect revolutionary positive healing? In what ways are social healers resisting, confronting, and/or transforming community healing? Our questions are inspired by the Caribbean novelist, scholar, and social activist, Dr. Erna Brodber.
