I turn to colleagues on this list for assistance in identifying studies examining the psychological impact on scholars of studying trauma/atrocity/genocide. Does studying such topics impact the scholars psychologically?
I hope to incorporate data from such studies into my current project. I thank you in advance for your assistance.
Dear Dr. Mengerink,
You might find Keith David Watenpaugh's "The Human Rights Historian and the Trafficked Child: Writing the History of Mass Violence and Individual Trauma" useful: http://www.historians.org/publications-and-directories/perspectives-on-history/october-201....
