Annie St. John-Stark
Annie is an assistant professor of history in TRU’s department of Philosophy, History and Politics who can speak to how war-based traumatic experiences have affected and continue to affect relationships, societal concepts of veteran and civilian survival mechanisms, and perspectives on intergenerational trauma.
Her research focus areas are:
- Trauma and memory in historical contexts of war and soldiering, apocalyptic and eschatological discourse in early modern Europe and Britain
- Conscience and honour in early modern Europe and Britain
- Intellectual and popular perspectives in history on religious belief and science
Her work has led to the development of three courses in TRU’s history program. She recently wrote a paper on memory and trauma among soldiers in 17th century England that she is presenting at the Memory Studies Conference in Madrid, Spain in June 2019.
St. John-Stark has taught at TRU for 20 years. She is the faculty representative on the editorial committee for Dialogues: Undergraduate Research in Philosophy, History, and Politics, a peer-reviewed journal published through Digital Commons/TRU.
