Rezensionen
'Detwiler and Breckenridge correctly identify a paradigm shift. Testimonio scholarship and the definition of testimonio as text or transcribed oral testimony have limited the role of marginalized groups the texts are meant to empower. Especially in the late-20th-century and early-21st-century contexts of new media, shifting global relations, truth commissions, post-dictatorial societies in Latin America, new social movements, and continued violations of human rights in neoliberal political circumstances, this collection of essays is timely. This book offers a refreshing step beyond the textual confinements of previous testimonio studies to consider other forms of agency, empowerment and denouncement through testifying to lived experience.'
