Figurations of Gender Based Violence and Trauma in Public Memory By Emilie Diouf.
Assistant Professor of English Brandeis University
Abstract:
This paper offers a framework for culturally specific approaches to engaging the trauma of gender based violence in public memory. It interrogates how gender-based violence figure in perceptions of political injury, justice, and public memory. It specifically examines how women’s ritual performances around childbirth might contribute to opening up a dialogic space on sexual violence on the African continent. How do rituals convey the reality of trauma specific to sexual violence?
