Remediating Gorilla Girl: Rape Warfare and the Limits of Humanitarian Storytelling
Abstract

Abstract:

Dian Fossey and the gorillas remain familiar figures in the global public sphere. But how do their life stories relate to the ongoing presence of mourning and violence in central Africa now? This essay considers feminist engagements with the "distant suffering" of victims of rape warfare at this unique contact zone where species meet.
