Tattoos and trauma: Why we commemorate
Dr. Deborah Davidson, Associate Professor, Department of Sociology, LA&PS

After an overview of her book The Tattoo Project, Dr. Deborah Davidson' presentation will proceed to provide a brief history of tattooing, and situates it as an embodied form of commemoration. Using photos of tattoos and their accompanying narratives, Dr. Deborah Davidson will show how tattoos can help their bearers to reclaim and reframe trauma, demonstrating resilience, as the victim becomes victor.

Deborah Davidson is an Associate Professor at York University and a tattooed sociologist with research and writing interests in the areas of loss and bereavement, and support for and creativity within trauma and grief. She has published on these issues and in the areas of motherhood, health, methodology, and pedagogy. You can read more about tattoos and commemoration in The Tattoo Project: Commemorative Tattoos, Visual Culture, and the Digital Archive (Davidson, Ed. 2017, Canadian Scholars’ Press).
