Cicatrices Resonantes Género, violencia y memoria en la obra literaria de Rocío Silva Santisteban


Ágata Cristina Cáceres Sztorc

The research presents, first, a brief historical overview of the decades of political violence in Peru as well as relevant approaches to racial discrimination and miscegenation. From a hybrid approach appealing to Gender Studies, Feminist and Post-Feminist Studies, Cultural Studies, Subaltern Studies, Memory and Post-memory studies, we propose three axes of analysis through Rocío’s Silva Santisteban poetic and narrative works: The patriarchal system and gender inequality, sexual violence against women during the internal armed conflict and post-memory. It is an approach that attends to the analysis of the articulations between different systems of signs and discursive practices, literary or not.
