Rhetorical Witnessing: Recognizing Genocide in Guatemala
Flynn, Elizabeth A.; Wolf, Rudiger Escobar
Community Literacy Journal, v2 n2 p23-44 Spr 2008
The article explores the rhetorical dimensions of witnessing. We concentrate, in particular, on two groups: 1) university students at the University of San Carlos, Quetzaltenango, whose murals are dramatic reminders of the massacres that resulted in the deaths of over 200,000 indigenous people in the 1980s and early 90s and of the corrupt governmental leaders responsible for them, and 2) U.S. accompaniers sponsored by an organization within our own community, the Copper Country Guatemala Accompaniment Project (CCGAP).
