Director of the Rubin Center for the Visual Arts at The University of Texas, El Paso

“One of the ideas that keep coming back to me when I think about resilience and social beings is the experience of trauma…And there is a theory of trauma called ‘betrayal trauma theory’ that talks about the fact that trauma is not only terror and fear, but also a social betrayal…The other aspect of trauma that I’ve been thinking a lot about is the concept of trauma as a disruption of meaning, or loss of meaning, and a disruption of the narrative in someone’s life…I think it is about questioning that functionality in our organization and creating new narratives as we move forward, so the thing I see as being resilient is our ability to create these new narratives”
