Abstract
Although trauma is by nature a pathological experience found in the lives of some traumatised human beings, I argue that it does not necessarily referring to the past memory. This article aims to revisit trauma by shifting trauma from intermingled with a disturbed memory the individuals might have towards the past to the new hypothesis that trauma is a contemporaneity where the relationships among the pathological subjects, the mental disorders, and the structural violence are coexistent - proved by the subject’s historical awareness drawn from colonialism and capitalist epochs
