In this class, we will study and write about trauma and its impact on bodies, minds, and lived experiences. We’ll study interpersonal trauma, trauma experienced as a result of war, and also trauma that results from racism, colonialism, classism, transphobia, homophobia, sexism, ableism, ageism, the accumulation of microaggressions, and more. We’ll examine the writing of survivors and write about the impact of trauma on ourselves and the people, communities, and world around us. We’ll also study healing—is it preferred, and if so, why? Is it possible, and if so, how?
