Enslavement, Isolation, Sexual Abuse, and the Brain: a discussion about Harriet Jacobs

Composer/ performer Anthony R. Green will discuss his recent research related to the life of Harriet Jacobs (1813 - 1897), who spent 7 years living in an attic on her way to freedom. The evening will also include a conversation with Dr. Ilya Veer about trauma, the brain, and how Ms. Jacobs could survive such extreme physical and mental duress. 

The series of events is a cooperation between the Haus der Kulturen der Welt and the Graduate School at the Berlin Centre for Advanced Studies in Arts and Sciences (BAS) of UdK Berlin.
