Post-doctoral fellow in History, University of South Africa

Theresa's research interests revolve around the storied nature of personal and social identities, histories and change. The focus of her doctoral research was the psychosocial legacies of apartheid era violence, and the system of compulsory conscription of white men into the South African Defence Force in particular. Over many years of both applied and academic work, her strongest curiosity has been how narratives of meaning-making and identity evolve over time when dealing with legacies of political, personal and systematic violence.
