Review The Objects That Remain

affecognitive, religion, film, affect, academica: Laura Levitt The Objects that Remain

“Levitt’s careful attention to the scenes of her own trauma do not reveal her ‘self’ to us, her readers, however. Instead, her words initiate a harmonic resonance between the objects in (and of) her traumatic memory and the objects in (and of) other traumas, other experiences, and other wounded sites of memory and loss. In writing toward these resonances, Levitt herself is both in the story and on the banks of its flow, both the object (subject) of reflection–as in a confession–but also able to step outside the flow of the story by showing up the process of thinking and writing.” (M. Gail Hamner)

Review The Objects That Remain

CLA professor’s new book, ‘The Objects That Remain,’ explores life after loss

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.
