Trauma, Forgiveness and Reconciliation Studies: Seminars/Research Forums

Description: Trauma, Forgiveness and Reconciliation Studies Keywords: Mellon Foundation


Through the seminars, we host established and leading scholars from a range of disciplines, including the arts in its diverse forms, to speak on issues related to historical trauma and memory. Thus, the seminars have been established as an interdisciplinary platform for reflection among scholars and artists engaged in critical investigations of historical trauma and memory. The seminars create opportunity for the community at the UFS and partners in the project to engage with established scholars and young thinkers with intriguing ideas and insight on issues related to historical trauma and memory. The Research Forums are designed for postgraduate students and postdoctoral fellows to present their work in progress, or chapters of their work as these become drafts that can be shared. While the audiences for the Seminars involve more rigorous debate, the Research Forums are conducted in a more intimate setting as they are more about ideas in progress rather than finished work as such.
