Silence and the Word: An Inquiry into the Accounts of Refugees in African Camps

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: refugee camps, testimony, victim, author, Africa

This work considers the testimonies of those people identified as «refugees» in humanitarian spaces. Numerous examples of collections of testimonies are ana¬lysed to broadly compare form and context, bringing them together in a logic of presentation ranging from an almost impossible word, silence even, to an elaborate and collective form of «conscientisation writing» to finally «artistic testimony».
