This project-based, research-led module is aimed at developing knowledge on the relationship between law, testimony and trauma. The module will concentrate on traumatic events related to social oppression, such as racism, sexism, classism and xenophobia. Through conducting research projects as part of the module, we will examine the roles legal systems play in sustaining or changing the socio-political conditions that enable traumatic events to take place.
