Professor Laura Levitt reflects on her life through the objects that remain after a deeply personal and violent trauma in her new work of literary nonfiction.
Laura Levitt’s expertise is in American Jewish life, gender, memory, the Holocaust, trauma and vistual culture. In her new work of literary nonfiction, the professor of religion, Jewish studies and gender, examines her search for acknowledgment, connection and justice after being raped in 1989.
Levitt’s deeply personal book tells the story of her trauma through the objects that bore witness to that crime and, in doing so, provides a new framework for catharsis.
