CfA: "Overcoming trauma of War in Post-conflict Societies through Gender Lenses"

As Russia, Europe throughout its history has always been the area of conflicts of a different scale. This is the place where the main battles of the both World Wars took their places, that led to the profound emotional war trauma for nations involved  in conflict and we cannot say that this trauma is fully overcome even nowadays. In recent decades, globalization more and more involves both Europe and Russia in war conflicts happening in other regions of the world. Increase in number of refugees from the states that are at war, acts of terrorism, the fear of new danger make the researches of the social and cultural trauma in post-conflict societies in comparative perspective  very important, because overcoming of trauma is determined by cultural, ethnic, racial, religious and gender features. That is why 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. 

We are planning to give answers to the following questions:

- How does the process of building cultural memory of war and overcoming war trauma affect the framing of national history?

- What is the influence of this process on formation of national, cultural and gender identities?

- What are the gender differences in overcoming trauma? How do trauma and commemoration affect building of gender relationships?

- How do refugees and forced migrants influence the recipient societies? What political, social, cultural, demographic changes do they cause?
