This collection of testimonio analysis from Louise Detwiler and Janis Breckenridge moves the engagement with these urgent life stories into the twenty-first century. The collection's twelve essays - by both distinguished and emerging scholars - feature contemporary concepts such as truth commissions, the post-revolutionary era, insile writing, ecology, and the nonhuman biotic witness. Also explored are the novel media of religious radio, documentary film, community embroideries, and comics. An interdisciplinary and geographically diverse collection. Pushing the Boundaries of Latin American Testimony will stimulate much discussion among readers with an interest in the fields of Latin American studies, life writing, human rights, women's studies, dictatorships and revolutions, and trauma studies.
