Traditional discursive practices in reporting research results serve as structures that reinforce dominant ideologies and suppress others. A project in which survivors of childhood trauma represented their experiences in quilt blocks demonstrates how alternative representational forms acknowledge a component of society that neutral, "objective" terminology has rendered mundane. The risks of challenging dominant discursive practices are discussed. (Contains 38 references.) (TD)
