New Book from CSP Alum Sean Akerman

Dr. Sean Akerman graduated from the Critical SP program in 2011 and has a forthcoming book he authored through Oxford University Press called Words and Wounds: Narratives of Exile. The book is part of the Explorations in Narrative Psychology series, and sits alongside books by Sunil Bhatia, Amia Lieblich, and Molly Andrews, who are regular points of reference in our program. Eight years ago, Sean’s dissertation fieldwork was based upon life history work with four Tibetans living in New York City. This book is drawn largely from those lives, with additional archival research to explore both structural violence and historical trauma transmitted across time and place. The book is available from Oxford University Press and Amazon.
