Welcome

Obfusque is an international network of trauma scholars, providing academic fellowship for researchers working across convergent fields of trauma theory - including anthropology, sociology, literary theory and philosophy.

Obfusque aims to invigorate scholarly dialogue between critical trauma disciplines, as well as offering collaborative opportunities for researchers who are institutionally isolated, or looking to contribute to a broader, interdisciplinary dialogue on trauma theory beyond the traditional limits of their fields.

What are CTS?

The notion of trauma as discreet emotional phenomenon has existed since the late nineteenth century, and its discourse has been fractured ever since. Critical trauma studies describes the analysis of trauma from a range of theoretical, human-centric perspectives, including anthropology, sociology, and literary theory. While each knowledge-group functions with its own, unique methodology, CTS attempts to synthesise thinking between disciplines towards shared understanding & discourse.
