Tikkun Olam, which literally translated means "heal the world," has come to connote social action and the pursuit of social justice. On November 1st, Anne K. Ream, the founder of The Voices and Faces Project and author of Lived Through This, a memoir of a multi country journey spent listening to survivors of gender-based violence, will consider the ways that testimony can break through ideological barriers, speak to the growing body of research that establishes links between sharing our stories and healing from trauma, and consider the ethics of story sharing in the digital age. The lecture will feature the photography of Patricia Evans. The response panel will include: Dr. Danny M. Cohen, author and Assistant Professor of Instruction at Northwestern University School of Education and Social Policy; Dr. Galya Ruffer, Founding Director of the Center for Forced Migration Studies at the Buffett Institute for Global Studies, and Leslie Thomas, Founder, Art Works for Change.
