Atim Eneida George ‘20 (GSLC, PhD) will participate in Indiana University’s Institute for Advanced Study. With funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities, she will attend the Summer Institute entitled, Content Warning: Engaging Trauma and Controversy in Research Collections, to be held in Bloomington, Indiana in July 2024. The Summer Institute will convene an interdisciplinary group of participants and faculty who will gather to learn with each other how to engage traumatic and/or controversial memories and histories connected with archival or museum collections. Together, they will seek to develop practices that can help others understand and heal historical harms.

This Summer Institute affords George the opportunity to continue the research on gender-based violence she initiated as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for Black Studies Research at University of California at Santa Barbara.
