Trauma: Conflict and Aftermath

A series of faculty and curriculum development activities on the subject of trauma.

This project looks at Trauma and its Aftermath through an interdisciplinary humanities focusing on three populations 1) Veterans of War; 2) Refugees and 3) Sexual Violence Victims. While usually the province of the clinical sciences, the complexity of trauma induced through intentional violence increasingly requires a humanities perspective to add to the analysis. University of the Incarnate Word will enhance the undergraduate humanities curriculum by implementing new courses and embedding service learning opportunities within new and existing courses with a focus on psychological trauma. A faculty cohort led by the PI will receive development via readings and invited lecturers each spring, develop curriculum in the summer, and then implement and evaluation new courses each fall semester of the project period. At the end of the three-year project, a conference will be held highlighting student and faculty work and research in this area.
