Location: Stanford University

Soul Wounds: Trauma and Healing across Generations
June 4-6, 2015, at Stanford University

An interdisciplinary colloquium on healing collective trauma in memory of Richard Rockefeller (1949-2014)

Now accepting paper proposals on:
Multigenerational legacies of genocide, slavery, and exile
Trauma and healing as historical processes
Epigenetics of trauma and recovery
New research in treating PTSD
Cultural healing through literature and art
Secondary trauma and the ethics of media coverage
Humanitarian intervention during and after mass trauma

Neither trauma nor community are imagined; both have biological and social realities. The soul wounds of atrocities are seated in body and community as well as in spirit, and cultural healing is crucial to collective recovery. The conflicts of the distant past continue to affect us, as descendants struggle with inherited injury and structural injustice. Scientists, humanists, journalists, and activists can work together to heal our collective hurts through cultural insight, scientific discovery, and humanitarian aid. Join us for a three-day conference on research and action.
