Content Warning: Engaging Trauma and Controversy in Research Collections is an Institute for Higher Education Faculty that will bring together faculty and advanced graduate students whose research addresses traumatic and/or controversial memories and histories and whose methods rely on archival or museum collections to interpret them. We will host 25 participants and an interdisciplinary faculty team for a 3-week residential program at Indiana University Bloomington, providing participants the opportunity to utilize the unique and diverse campus and local community collections as case studies to consider and as sites to further their specific research agendas.
