Narratives of Cultural Trauma (And Resilience): Collective Negotiation of Material Well-Being in Disaster Recovery

Cultural trauma occurs with a shared understanding that a group has experienced a horrendous event. We analyze a television series on community recovery from tornados. Using cultural trauma theory, we explain how resilience narratives sustain recovery in communities, and theorize why some communities differ in their capacity to materially recover.
