Workshop with History Professor James Campbell, "Why Are We Talking About This Now?: The Politics of Historical Reconciliation in Contemporary America"

James Campbell specializes in African-American history and the history of the black African slave trade. In his current research, Campbell focuses on historical narratives and storytelling, examining the ways in which societies document and tell about their pasts, not only in textbooks and academic monographs but also in historic sites, museums, memorials, movies, and political movements. Professor Campbell is also interested in the history of American filmmaking.
This Mind, Body, and Culture Workshop Series brings together scholars, doctors, and activists who study trauma and healing and provides a dynamic and interactive venue in which they can grapple with a wide range of issues and approaches pertinent to this field.
