A unique opportunity awaits students of ELTE Summer University of 2024 on Social Traumas Living with Us — to learn about the depth and gravity of social traumas, their transgenerational transmission, and their social constructions, and to dive into the social and individual consequences of different traumas such as the Holocaust trauma, trauma of social exclusion and marginalisation, and the trauma of ongoing warfare in society. We will tackle topics related to war fear and anxiety about nuclear warfare.
