The SOF Thursday Lecture Series, presented by the Society of Fellows and Heyman Center for the Humanities, will feature Renzo Aroni. The lecture will be on “Gender and Punishment: How the Shining Path Cut Off the Hair of Women in Peru”.
Seminar with panelists Angelika Bammer, Raina Croff, Evelynn M. Hammonds, Sará King, Bianca Marlin Jones and moderators Clare McCormack and Noni Carter. In 2019, the Presidential Scholars at Columbia University held a seminar on the topic of neuroscience and intergenerational trauma, specifically asking how the remote past gets under our skin. We are enthusiastic to expand the direction of the dialogue with this special panel discussion focusing specifically on issues of intergenerational trauma and healing, neuroscience, and race. We will explore the ways in which activists and scholars have risen to the occasion, translating research into practice as they grapple with the unique historical role 2020 will play in furthering scholarly studies in this field and in expanding various frameworks for trauma healing around the globe. In question, here, are not only the types of insights 2020 will continue to add to ongoing research into various mechanisms of intergenerational transmission, but also the ethical challenges that arise when meeting a historical moment-in-the-making and the role (social justice) care work, inspired by scientific narratives of trauma and memory, will continue to play.
