Columbia University Press

Djebar considers how to testify about women's participation in the war of independence, by promoting a verbal exchange that deemphasizes the visual within the testimonial act between the survivor who speaks and the listener. This chapter also examines her use of a Roman mosaic as an allegory of the ways in which women's resistance should be historicized.
