Expanding the Notion of Trauma Narration: An Interdisciplinary Research intoPost-Narrative Modes of Trauma Recovery in Transcultural TraumaPsychology and Theatre Studies (01D28315)

This study focuses on the blurring of the linearity between narration and trauma recovery, which forms the topic of theoretical developments in both transcultural trauma psychology and theatre studies. This interdisciplinary study develops an empirical inquiry into post-narrative modes of a postdramatic aesthetic in applied theatre, aiming to further the understanding of trauma recovery shaped by coping strategies beyond narration.
