Judith Carlisle awarded $5,000 for Divided City Summer Research Grant proposal, “Trauma, Segregation, and Racial Violence”

We congratulate Judith in being awarded $5,000 for her Divided City Summer Research Grant proposal, "Trauma, Segregation, and Racial Violence."

This project will explore the concepts of community level trauma as well as vicarious (or indirect) trauma by focusing on case studies from the history of Saint Louis. In particular, I hope to investigate the ways in which our traditional, narrowly defined, and individualistic notion of psychological trauma intersects with a broader and more inclusive conception of trauma that may be better equipped to make sense of the kinds of trauma that result from chronic oppression or vicarious experiences of violence witnessed in media.
