“WORLD Series- Surviving State Terror: Women’s Testimonies of Repression and Resistance in Argentina February 6th 1-2:30 pm

WORLD is an acronym for Women Owning Responsibility for Learning and Doing, Russell Sage College’s general education program. The program hosts speakers on wide-ranging and complex topics.

Cover of Surviving State Terror by Barbara SuttonOn February 6, Barbara Sutton, an associate professor in the Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies department at the University at Albany, will speak about her book, Surviving State Terror: Women’s Testimonies of Repression and Resistance in Argentina.

In the 1970s and early 80s, military and security forces in Argentina hunted down, tortured, imprisoned, and in many cases, murdered political activists and other people branded “subversives.” In Surviving State Terror, Sutton draws upon a wealth of oral testimonies to place women’s bodies and voices at the center of the analysis of state terror. Sutton explores various instances of violence toward women, such as sexual abuse and torture at the hands of state officials. She also uses these narratives to explore why some types of social suffering and certain women’s voices are heard more than others, and how this can be rectified in our own practices of understanding and witnessing trauma.
