The project focuses on various kinds of trauma fiction in contemporary culture. The question of how to make sense of and represent traumatic events and reactions emerges frequently in today’s literature, film, visual arts and television.

A main goal for the project is to analyze selected media and artistic manifestations from contemporary Western culture and discuss them in relation to recent contributions to trauma studies and aesthetic theory.
