Julia Vajda

Julia Vajda, senior researcher of the Institute of Sociology at Eötvös Loránd University,
Budapest is a sociologist and psychologist, who also works as a psychotherapist.
Aside from the theory and notion of trauma, the effect of the Shoah on the
different post-Shoah generations in Hungary is the core of her research interest.
Trained also in psycho-analysis, she works in her methodology with narrative interviews,
and in their hermeneutic case reconstruction, she combines a psycho-analytic
understanding with the analysis of narrative identity (as Paul Ricoeur uses the term).
