Trauma-Informed Literature and Classrooms
- Course Number: ENGL 170TL
- Quarter: Fall 2023
This course recognizes the prevalence of trauma in our world and thus in campus and classroom environments. It examines multiple reasons why some groups of people are exposed more frequently than others to traumatizing situations without necessarily becoming traumatized as individuals. We read critical discussions of trauma (especially neuro-biological and psychoanalytic) and literary texts that deal with trauma. Some of the questions we explore are the relation between individual and collective experiences of trauma; somatic and psychological consequences of trauma; how trauma impedes learning and well-being; the benefits and harms of trigger warnings; responsible ways to speak and write about trauma.
