After the Crisis: Narratives of Traumatic Events
An Interdisciplinary Conference on Narratives of Traumatic Events
Kristiansand, Norway, June 6-8, 2012
The conference’s aim is to focus on various kinds of trauma narratives, for instance stories told by clients in therapy, stories told by survivors or witnesses to the media, or stories told by professional authors in fiction and non-fictional texts. We welcome contributions that explore various dimensions of trauma narratives, such as form and function, gender inscriptions, sexuality and power, or effect and role of narratives in the construction of national and historical trauma concepts.
We invite scholars across scientific and departmental boundaries to share new research on trauma narratives and representations of trauma.
