Air Time to be Announced.
In the first of this trilogy of women storytellers, Laura Levitt, author of “The Objects That Remain” and professor of Religion, Jewish Studies, and Gender at Temple University, talks with Barbara Abrams, associate professor of World Languages and Cultural Studies Department at Suffolk University.
“The Objects That Remain” is Laura Levitt’s memoir and examination of the ways in which the material remains of violent crimes inform our thinking about trauma and loss. Considering artifacts in the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and evidence in police storage facilities across the country, Levitt’s story moves between intimate trauma, the story of an unsolved rape, and genocide. She asks what it might mean to do justice to these violent pasts outside the justice system or through historical accounts.
