Sean Rupka is currently a doctoral candidate in the department of Political Science at the Graduate Center - City University New York. Focusing on the intersection of trauma, memory and history, Sean’s interdisciplinary work draws on film, literature and historical theory to discuss the politics of trauma as it relates to the (in)coherence of modern subjectivity, and the political implications of trauma’s transmissibility. Sean has presented multiple times in this area, drawing from a range of films covering genocide and warfare, the works of Kafka, Blanchot, and Walter Benjamin discussing both reconciliation and legacies of resistance.
