Counter-Narratives of Mourning the Missing Persons in Cyprus: Pedagogical Limits and Openings for Reconciliation Education in Conflict-Ridden Societies
Zembylas, Michalinos
Perspectives in Education, v27 n2 p120-132 Jun 2009
In this article I examine the possibilities that exist within mourning and mourning narratives for coming to terms with the pain and suffering of the oppositional Other. This implies that rather than taking official discourses as structured and predictable, research with citizens of Cyprus, who had lost loved ones through war, demonstrates pedagogical and political possibilities for counternarratives and counter-mourning based on the recognition of common suffering.
