Course aim

The main aim of the summer school is to carry out a comparative analysis of the experience of overcoming of social and cultural trauma in different post-conflict societies in Europe and Russia. Trauma studies have institutionalized in the Western social sciences long time ago, but many researchers still find these studies unformed and amorphous. Trauma studies combine approaches of many different social studies, so they need to develop own structure and methods. Trauma studies as a trend do not exist in Russia, so we consider it important to popularize Trauma studies among Russian researchers.
