Testimonio is a type of writing known in Latin America and integral to U.S. Latina and Chicana traditions. The testimonio usually tells a story in a collective mode, or offers an individual's story as representative of a people and, more specifically, a community. In this course, we consider both the literary, visual, and performative versions of testimonio in order to investigate how individual experiences can represent a group and resonate powerfully beyond geopolitical and cultural borders. We will also contemplate the end result or outcome of the testimonio. In other words, do testimonies change lives? Do they change laws? Do they help people heal and live?
