Princeton Mellon Initiative in Architecture, Urbanism and the Humanities

The history of trauma resides in each of us—as citizens, we are marked by the history of our countries at (perpetual) war, both present and past. Cities, like individuals, bear witness to the psychological, physical, and affective consequences of individual and collective trauma. This session explores the attempts to remember, forget, or mark the landscape with our histories of trauma, moral injury, and losses.
