Writing Wrongs: Literature, Trauma, and the African Moral Imagination

UI alumnus J. Roger Kurtz, professor of African literatures at The College at Brockport: State University of New York will present on engaging trauma theory through African literature in an upcoming UI talk Thursday, April 24, 2014, at noon in 1117 University Capitol Centre. The event is free and open to the public.

This presentation will examine conceptual problems of the Eurocentric origins of trauma theory and make suggestions on how “re–membering practices” of African literature may offer ways to reframe trauma studies from an African perspective.
