Confessionals, Testimonials: Women's Speech in/and Contexts of Violence

Hypatia 11 (4):92 - 106 (1996)

Theories of discursive genres provide the philosophical and theoretical framework for the empirical examination of the ways in which immigrant women construct their cultural identities in contexts of violence. The claim of the paper is that the analytical genres of confessional and testimonial discourse enable the examination of the particular ways by which immigrant women both reproduce and resist power and violence.
