Week 3: Trauma, grief and bereavement
Watch the video in which Annika talks about the subject of this week.
In this final week of the course, you will be taking a closer look at grief and grieving during and after the war, and the different expressions that this could take − from private and public grief, to the way such emotions were explored by artists and authors in art and literature.
You will also find out how attitudes to shell shock developed after the war. You will study examples of how this topic was represented in art and literature, and you’ll consider how the condition was treated and regarded at different times in the twentieth century.
