Concealing God: How Argentine Women Political Prisoners Performed a Collective Identity

From: Biography
Volume 36, Number 1, Winter 2013
pp. 211-241 | 10.1353/bio.2013.0006



This essay analyzes the performance of a collective identity in a book by 120 Argentine women genocide survivors. Anticolonial, anti-imperialist, and rooted in the Liberation Theology movement, these prisoners resist destruction concealing religious practices. Through interviews with the authors, my interdisciplinary study shows how this collective identity, a response to psychological warfare, protects solidarity.
