Trauma Scholars to Look Up

Susannah Radstone points out the following scholars I should look up:

  • Carolyn Steedman and Empathy Theory (23).
  • David Alexander points out that “trauma sites and trauma victims frequently become the objects of voyeuristic, or triumphalist fascination” (23).
  • James Berger, writing about 9/11, indicates that “while some events get labelled traumatic, others, quite patently, do not” (25).
  • Nancy Miller, commenting on the “Portraits of Grief” series in the New York Times (26).
