Sara Matthews' research explores ways in which people deal with trauma due to war and social conflict. Her students are constantly challenged to confront and understand these disturbing realities and to reflect deeply on their local and global learning experience. Matthews encourages her students to become engaged in the process of learning as an active and purposeful series of encounters, ideas and exchanges.
