Radical Research from BIPOC Scholars at UIC

Presented by the UIC Latino Cultural Center 

Join us as Bridge to the Faculty (B2F) scholars share their experiences and respective research with the UIC community. Through an intersectional lens, these scholars reveal the complexity and specificity of their contemporary research and how the lives of those in the margins are impacted.

Dr. Azadeh Safaeian from the Department of Disability and Human Development will present the argument of her current book project (Toward a Minor Theory of Trauma: Postcolonial Subject in the Iran-Iraq War). Located at the intersection of critical disability studies and trauma theory, her research attends to the discursive and non-discursive representations of somatic pain and psychological trauma in the literature and cinemas of minority groups in the context of the Middle East.
