Description

A model of engaged scholarship, this book examines first-person testimonials by women who have survived abuse and atrocity in zones of conflict and terror. Drawing on a wide range of sources and settings, including genocide, state terror, ethnic cleansing, and war, Anne Cubilie uses survivor testimony as theoretical invention, placing personal witness in dialogue with work by philosophers, literary theorists, and others who study the space between victim and survivor, ethical witness and silenced observer, male and female. This nuanced example of ethical criticism demonstrates forcefully how ethical witnessing-listening to the voices of survivors- reformulates the language of human rights and enhances its ability to intervene against violence and oppression.
