Ep. 3:10 We Don't Go Back, We Go Forward - Interview with Dr. Samira Rajabi
Dr. Samira Rajabi, Assistant Professor of Media Studies at U of Colorado Boulder, joins us for a discussion of navigating ambiguous grief and trauma in the pandemic academy and the rest of life. Drawing from her research for her new book, All My Friends Live in the Computer: Tactical Media, Trauma, and Meaning Making, as well as her own personal stories, Samira talks with us about the importance of social media communities in navigating suffering, and ways to interrupt capitalist narratives of productivity and success/failure, in order to reconnect with genuine loss, and move through and past it to what comes next. Sometimes all it takes is a kazoo!
