  • Ricoeur's Theory of Metaphor as Trauma Praxis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Now begins to rise in me the familiar rhythm; words that have lain dormant now lift, now toss their crests, and fall and rise, and fall again. I am a poet, yes.This article applies Paul Ricoeur's theory of the "living metaphor" in an effort to develop a poetic framework for expressing, representing and healing from experiences of trauma.1 The aspect of Ricoeur's theory that I focus on, as his work on the living metaphor is extensive and must be narrowed down for the purposes of this article, is his argument that poetic expressions can manifest a dialectically tensional status of meaning that is linguistically and existentially a convergence of binary poles such as true and false, real and imagined, temporal and ...

  • Dystopia, Trauma, and Resignation: A Reading of Perec's W, or the Memory
           of Childhood and Ishiguro's Never Let Me Go

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This essay represents an attempt to interpret the configuration of the dystopian imagination. My hypothesis is that what makes literary dystopias archetypal situations—that is, more than mere descriptions of unjust regimes—is that their subjects are deprived of agency. While dystopia is traditionally defined as a "non-existent society . . . that the author intended a contemporaneous reader to view as considerably worse than the society in which that reader lived," I would like to add here that most dystopias describe societies in which human subjectivity has been reduced to pure passivity.1 It is, therefore, not only coercion but an ineluctable compliance with coercion that stands at the core of dystopia. Here I ... Read More

  • Postmemory's Graphic Symptom: Disembodied Voice, Repetition Compulsion,
           and Working through Trauma in GB Tran's Vietnamerica

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In the graphic memoir Vietnamerica, GB Tran draws and narrates his family history, which revolves around the First Indochina and the Vietnam Wars. Growing up as a second-generation Vietnamese American, GB did not know much about his parents' Vietnam War experiences due to their silence on the topic (I will use GB Tran's first name to differentiate him from family members whose surnames are also Tran). Indeed, in Vietnamerica, Vietnam War survivors—and in particular GB's parents, Tri and Dzung—show neither negative emotions nor traumatic symptoms in spite of the tragic events in their lives. Although his parents display no obvious symptoms of trauma, scholars have discussed Vietnamerica as a work of postmemory, as ... Read More

  • Forms of Mediation in Ari Folman's Waltz with Bashir

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: You have to take care of yourself: it is you who takes care; and then you take care of something which is the same thing as yourself, [the same thing] as the subject who "takes care," this is your self as object. Scholars of film studies and trauma studies have dedicated much thinking to Waltz with Bashir (2008) by Israeli director Ari Folman. 2 The animated film is based on Folman's participation as an Israeli soldier in the 1982 Lebanon war. The movie's main character, Folman himself, attempts to remember—twenty-four years later—repressed memories from the war. ... Read More

  • Forgetful Remembrance. Social Forgetting and Vernacular Historiography of
           a Rebellion in Ulster by Guy Beiner (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Scholars of memory have long acknowledged that the process of remembering is closely linked to forgetting, yet it has only rarely been the subject of historical analysis. Maurice Hawlbachs, the pioneer of memory studies, touched on the topic of forgetting but never considered it as a phenomenon in its own right. Forgetting, for Hawlbachs, was the opposite of memory, evidence of memory's failure. Despite the "boom" in memory studies from the 1980s onwards, forgetting remains an under-researched topic. In this ambitious and meticulously researched study Beiner addresses this neglect and makes a compelling case for a lethehistory to match Jan Assman's call for mnemohistory.The focus of Forgetful Remembrance is the ...

  • Revisiting the Sites of Trauma: The War Poetry of Siegfried Sassoon,
           Edmund Blunden, and Richard Hugo

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Understanding history and the processing of memory often relies on the perspective generated from one's sense of place. The prevailing memories of a war and the events of monumental and often catastrophic change are captured in place names. Cities, towns, rivers, hills, beaches, and other geographical landmarks have become synonymous with victory, devastation, horror, and inhumanity. Unshakable from the collective memory of the World Wars are names like "The Western Front," "Verdun," "The Somme," "Passchendaele," "Mametz Wood," "Pearl Harbor," "Normandy," "Auschwitz," "Hiroshima," "Iwo Jima," and countless others. Trauma theorists have studied ... Read More
