New Topic for 2013-16: In the Aftermath of Catastrophe
During the academic years 2014/15 and 2015/16, the Shelby Cullom Davis Center for Historical Analysis will take as its theme “In the aftermath of catastrophe.” What happens in the wake of cataclysmic experiences: war, civil war, genocide, imperial collapse, natural disaster? The aim in part is to understand processes of reconstruction but not only that. How was the experience of catastrophe remembered and memorialized; how was trauma conceived and dealt with; how was the post-catastrophic present understood in relation to the pre-disaster past? As always, we hope to address these questions from a wide variety of periods and places, from prehistory to the present and from all parts of the world
